Sitting on a hillside between the forest and the slope, the stunning Stage of Forest is surrounded by overwhelming white snow and majestic scenery. Located in the Songhua Lake Resort of Jilin, China, the Stage of Forest invites you to become a part of nature. The structure is more than a simple look-out, it is a unique and flexible public space, perfect for hosting events, exhibitions, meetings, workshops and more. The Stage faces the distant Songhua lake and the surrounding mountains of the region. The entire Stage grows out of the Mongolian oak forest, enhancing your experience with nature and creating tension between the cantilever and the surrounding landscape. When entering the concrete vestibule a stunning view of the stretching slope welcomes you in, then a narrow staircase leads you to the platform level, opening the panoramic view of the magical Songhua lake, winding in-between the base of the mountains.
