The Meditation Centre is a five-storey sanctuary nestled within the Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery. The building façade is a dense but porous screen consisting of vertical rods of different diameters and hues, mimicking a thick bamboo grove. One’s vision is also drawn upwards by the verticality of the façade towards the contrasting and sweeping lines of the roof eaves. This creates a kinship with the traditional Chinese roofs that adorn nearby buildings within the monastery’s compounds.
