The specific essence of the place is fed back to the mind through the “body sense” – smell, sight, hearing, touch, etc., which interacts with the spirit of the place, thus generating the “awe” of the perceived space. Space carries a mysterious primordial power that grows out of the site.
In Ya ‘an, we transfer the original power of the site to the space through a certain feeling of the body.
The “Sheng”, one of the oldest free-reed instruments in China, vibrates in the cavity by pumping air into it, and the sound is emitted through different sound holes in the tube wall. The ancient way of sound becomes the driving force for us to perceive the force of nature. We use the dominant wind direction of the local area as the original kinetic energy of air flow, and set a public space for local residents and tourists to stay at the bottom of different cavities. Different cavities become devices for citizens to listen to the natural sound and the voice of themselves.
