Rising Moon is a hemispheric pavilion that has been conceived by the Daydreamers Design studio team. Lighting up Hong Kong's urban landscape, the domed architecture piece is located in the heart of Victoria Park.

The art and architecture collective has created this temporary structure as part of the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival, an event that sees citizens gathering together while carrying brightly-lit lanterns to celebrate the full moon, a symbol of unity and harmony.

Rising Moon by Daydreamers Design takes visual inspiration from traditional Chinese paper lanterns in its geodesic, steel dome design. The structure's metal frame is filled in with recycled polycarbonate water bottles that are back-lit with colored LEDs.

The structure's 20 meter diameter and eye-catching design details embody the true definition of sensory space. Moreover, the architecture piece encourages sustainable practices while paying homage to the beauty of its full moon symbol.
