Located in the gardens of the One Nanyuan hotel, Wind Eaves Pavilion is a multipurpose pavilion by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and Associates situated in the Hsinchu County in Taiwan, installed for the neighbouring wellness retreat and luxury hotel that celebrates a nature-focussed lifestyle. Kengo Kuma was commissioned to create the 180 square meter timber structure that seamlessly connects with the gardens, inspiring guests of their interrelated environments. 

Using Hinoki (cypress wood) sourced from the surrounding forest for its arch-like structure, the framework is clad with a transparent ETFE membrane, solid to support in hosting music and various performances.
