Raymond Moriyama’s Toronto Reference Library (1977) was a source of inspiration for space and detail design of the project. Outlining of merlot red carpet, in contrast with white vertical surface, and stacked loggias, create an obvious geometric void to the space. This architectural lanquage has been applied throughout the event, which aim to create a dialogue between connecting spaces.
Rotunda - space with circular floor plan, shape of circle, form of sphere and transversal line; are utilised in different areas. The way circles collide in different planes on the backdrop and how flowers are arrange in one diagonal line helps generate its own invisible pattern, which is similar to the cake stand. Various shades of tinted acrylic panels; including white, milky, mustard, red, and maroon; were assemble together to create a semi-transparent effect of light passing through at the foyer area. The stage backdrop was constructed symmetrically with customised sphere lamps, which are inspired from Garrault-Delord’s 1971 Lampadaire lamp. Colour scheme of flowers include white, orange, peach, and spot of dark red, with choices of flowers consisting of Phalaennopis, Cymbidium, Anthurium, Anthurium Luxurian, Arachnis, Gypsophilla, and rose.
