The Pickle Blog

We are influenced by a lot more than design around us, in our blog we will add photography, architecture, art and anything else that sparks our curiosity. All along with anything happening in the studio and our design classics.

Invisible Trails in China

13th December 2016

China’s famous Wulingyan region is about to get some very subtle and beautiful design. How do you connect epic stones and maximise amazing vistas? By architecture that almost isn’t there. Martin Duplantier has conceived an award-winning series of pavilions, bridges and observation areas for this walker’s paradise.

The structures are made with mirrored stainless steel and black stone which reflects the surroundings when wet. There is a lovely weightless look to the structures, something quite other-worldy. The forms look delicately placed, like they are just resting, visiting the impressive surroundings.

There is set to be a café as well as rooms for guest to stay, I can’t think of a much better way to rest after an epic hike!
