People stroll around the Flower Market with friends and families, purchasing auspicious dolls and accessories as well as festive flowers and plants to decorate their homes. The Flower Market, indeed, could be understood as a ‘Temple’ before New Year’s Day. Hence, we wish to combine the meaning of the market and the ‘temple’ with this opportunity to design a unique entrance for the Flower Market.

Taking references from traditional Chinese temple gateway, we translated the highly complex architectural expression into an abstract form as an entrance of the Flower Market, in which symbolically infusing the ‘temple’ into the market. Instead of erecting a solid block, a lattice structure is adopted in minimising the visual blockage and structural load while still achieving a highly recognisable landmark that can be seen from a distance.
