Hong Kong BLH BIOTECHNOLOGY RESEARCH CENTERVarious proposals for a fair, and for a biotech. research center. The complex of the biotech factory looks to the future, using new construction technologies and innovative materials, at the same time looking to the symbolism of China.
The suggestion is that of the flapping of the butterflies' wings, which placed on the ground, are about to take flight and embrace the future and new horizons.
The butterfly evokes the extraordinary metamorphosis of life :
"The wonder for this phenomenon that originates and develops without external interventions, leading the animal from the condition of a caterpillar to that of a larva and finally a butterfly, deeply affects men, who are so driven to reflect on their own spiritual transformation. In this way they are convinced that they are able to abandon their corporeal nature and ascend to the heaven of eternal light ”.
(Hans Biedermann, Knaurs Lexicon der Symbole, 1996)
The metamorphosis of the butterfly is basically a sign of transformation and rebirth, like the Phoenix. It represents the soul that, having left the body, reaches a higher degree of perfection.
Its symbolism therefore depicts the ability to put wings and soar in flight, through a metamorphosis that affects the whole being.
