NL Architects are building a bicycle club for housing corporation VANKE in Southern China, which accommodates bike rental and a café. Plans for the pavilion include a distinctive protruding roof with elegant curves that mimics the shape of a traditional pagoda. While the café would be situated below, the upper level provides a cycling track so visitors can ride around the oversized top.
