Bristol Confucius Institute for Pottery
As the United Kingdom prepares to leave the European Union, our relationship with other countries becomes more important, particularly to those with a global outreach and influence such as China. The building proposal is a Confucius Institute which aims to aid in the UK’s relationship to China which is important for trade.
The institute provides space for the teaching of the Chinese language and sharing of Chinese culture, as well as a pottery. The design of the pottery aims to connect the resident potters to nature; an important inspiration in Chinese arts.
