1. In the past, an old tree always acted as the core of the gathering among the villagers, who exchanged daily information and built relationships. It is a habit and a collective memory to gather under the old tree. Tea is the tradition and essence of the old Xiamen culture. It is a ritual and life to boil water and brew tea for friends. A glass tea pavilion surrounded by a lake is a prelude, just like the transparent container for the ritual on the tea table. With a scenery of exceptional charm, the underground is surrounded by the circular atrium bringing light and water nourishing the tree in the bottom of the lake that stretches out to the sky. The scene resembles the simplest appearance of the heaven and the earth. The daylight makes the tree shadow wander indoor where people could leave behind their busy schedules and slow down. They could gather under the tree, enjoy the time together, observe the day and night and the four seasons. As they sip a cup of tea, they could feel themselves surpassing the order of the bustling city, and comfortable breath in the rhythm of life.

    過往村鎮生活總以老樹為集會核心,鏈結人們交換日常資訊與情感,生活大小事向樹下靠攏是習慣也成一種集體記憶。而茶,又是老廈門的文化主軸及精髓,烹水泡茶、以茶待友是儀式更是生活。一座湖泊環繞映襯天光的玻璃茶庭是序曲,如透明容器裝載著茶席上的儀式行為,別有洞天的地底因著環形天井納入陽光,引水、借光而在湖底世界滋養了一株向天伸展的樹,形成天地循環最單純的模樣。白晝任樹影在室內遊走,人們卸下行程計畫、卸下慣性速度,僅就著枝葉淡影享受遮蔭、靠攏相聚,以自然直覺閱讀日夜和四季,用一盞又一盞茶來記錄時光,超脫城市時序的空間,讓人得以用舒適的吐納節奏感受光陰變化。
