Posted on 2019-08-15
The 2019 Shanghai Urban Space Art Season (SUSAS) was held in Yangpu Binjiang on September 29. House T exhibited in the Planning Architecture section of this exhibition (4F "Vitality" booth of Maoma Warehouse). This exhibition presents the latest waterfront studies and practices of eight Chinese young architects. As a design force that is gradually maturing, young architects demonstrate diverse and profound ideas and creative abilities due to their different educational backgrounds and growth experiences. Faced with the eternal topic of people and water, they have given new responses for the present period and explored a variety of possibilities for the future.
House T, located in a prime position within steps to the beach, this site not only takes in sweeping view of the sea without any obstruction. we re-create a new spatial experience that flows “through” the building. which engages people with the surrounding of this prime site as one moves through the house, providing a sense of the entire natural/communal environment in incidental moments.
