This project is a speculative food pavilion exploring how spatial conditions affect visitors’ mindsets within a changing food cultural narrative, and highlights an understanding of Chinese food culture in a Melbourne dining context. The project references the tradition and essence of Chinese food though reinterpreting this creatively in the present-day. Ultimately an alternative dining experience is achieved via a culturally fused environment. The essence of traditional Chinese food is constructed and deconstructed through the technique of Superimposition with specific Melbourne dining characteristics. Through such a technique a contemporary spatial condition for dining is achieved. The Food Pavilion is comprised of three levels each with a unique identity: inheritance, fusion and creation. These identities are linked and supplement each other to create an extended understanding of the Chinese dining context.
