Peace pavilion Gently float on the ground and blend into the base landscape in a humble posture. Stepping onto the suspended pedestal and entering through a narrow doorway, it is a courtyard enclosed by a wooden structure colonnade. The sun shines in from the top of courtyard and shines on the wooden box in the middle. The simple sequence expresses the tranquility of the space.People can walk, communicate and sit quietly in the courtyard to feel the stability and tranquility of their homes in the peaceful times. On the one hand, the courtyard provides a space for people to communicate with each other. On the other hand, it also improves the microclimate of the building and increases the indoor ventilation effect. Work into the corridor from the courtyard, the long corridor sensitively accommodates the rhythm of the footsteps, and the sound of the courtyard. the light coming in from the hole in the clay wall, sprinkled in the hallway, leading people to the area of prayer and contemplation,Along the steps,you come to the contemplative space, Mood slowly settled and brew a mood that is in harmony with the contemplative atmosphere. Along the wooden pillars arranged longitudinally on both sides, the line of sight extends forward. The narrow and long gap between the two exhibition halls allows you to see the outside world. But as you pass by, the scenery outside the building will fade slowly and eventually fade away as the angle changes. It encourages visitors to reflect on and remember the relentlessness of the turmoil and its depression, as well as the fresh life that has fallen from the war, but most importantly, to look forward to a peaceful and beautiful world and the future. Light shines through the gap between the eaves and the rammed earth wall, hits the wall, increases the quietness of space, and the space in this area materializes the meaning of peace.
The prediction of local technology and the understanding of the spatial characteristics of the "Peace Pavilion" make us finally choose the construction method of using rammed earth wall and wood frame. Consider using local rammed earth and local wood to create a space that fits the theme. The spatial interface is defined by the inner timber structure and the outer rammed earth.Light fuses the two materials together.
The Peace Pavilion is a system which combines rammed earth wall and timber structure system. The internal and external space interface is defined by external rammed earth wall and inner timber. The structure system is clear and simple, and the construction difficulty is low. You can build it as follows Firstly, the foundation is poured on the foundation, rammed earth wall and wooden structure pillars are built on the foundation, then wooden roof truss is built on wooden structure pillars, wooden roof truss is exposed, wooden beams and wooden pillars are bolted to form a directional wooden structure, finally purlin, Watchboard and roof iron sheet are erected on the wooden structure, and finally the construction of "Peace Pavilion" is completed.

Africa has a complex and diverse geo.dimate, natural environment and regional culture. Whether it is a restricted economic constraints or a disorderly social order, the internal contradiction of the beginning of its war is the conflict of human-Iand relations. If faith, culture and other conscious conflicts are abandoned, peace is a reflection of the symbiotic order between people and nature. On the contrary, people's friendly handling of the relationship with the environment will inevitably lead to a good economic system and social contract The boundary is a manifestation of a spiritual or material dispute, and it is also an expression of the order of humar干land relations, and the essence of peace is the self-digestion of the boundary. Therefore, we hope to create a place in the field where borders disappear, to direct the sight of people as they meditate to the disappea阳lce of the sky, in order to form an eternal and silent horizon, and thus to mourn the deep memory of the dead life, and the desire and value of peace.
The design takes the local material as the main construction material, we select the shape, texture, adhesion and abstraction of different material properties as a mixed experiment to transform the physical state of different materials into emotional elements, revealing the spiritual connotation of the place. Among them, the mixture of materials extracts the form of rammed earth compaction, and then extracts the shell as a filler texture, and a small amount of cement as a bonding substrate, brushing white slurry on the surface, and finally formed the material on the "peace" of the abstract expression
The project construction takes the earthwork in the site as the original material, forms the slope and sinking site through the excavation balance, then uses the remaining earthwork to consolidate into the wall and synthesize the outer corridor. In the construction, the design process of the rammed earth wall is designed, that is, the plank as a template, with rammed earth as the base material, shells as fillers, part of the cement as a cemented material to form a special concrete. In terms of structure, the structure of the main body is supported bya wooden beam frame, and the rammed earth wall is used as a maintenance system. At the same time, the rainwater of the site is collected by using the caisson. By the above means, we can use the strategy of local material to complete the project as much as possible and ensure the water storage function of the site.

“Peace revolves around dialogue and understanding between peoples”. So the spaces rotate around the patio of light and water. The strength of the earthen wall contrasts with the fragility of the bamboo cane wall creating a path of light and shadow. The water make a vibrant light into the spaces transmitting a sense of vitality. A fabric upholsterers the ceiling giving a sense of lightness. The pavilion is a small introvert volume with a simple shape that defines a clear relationship with existing buildings and the river in terms of proportions and position. The concrete base becomes an external seat shaded by a row of trees on the south side, where there is the entrance: a vertical portal. The external wall is pierced allowing a good ventilation of the internal environments. Design and materials permit a simple realization using clay bricks covered with raw earth and bamboo canes for the internal façade and the roof structure.
