When it comes to the religious building, we need to consider in the symbolic signs and representation that sometimes will guide us through the whole process of design. If we talk about Vihara, we will think about a building that has oriental-style-architecture.

The design concept is from the characteristic of oriental architecture added with some modern elements. We simplify the ornaments and strip down the whole no-meaning ornaments into a clean element to build an oriental and modern vihara.
