PROJECT: pick a square, take a sheet.
Curation of the installation, “Place by Displacement” for the exhibition Mapgames. Exhibited in Beijing,China Birmingham,UK and Terni,Italy.
The installation features a map approximately 2m by 2m of Beijing within the second ring divided into 71 20cm by 20cm square game pieces. Each game piece is a stack of map squares on a tear-away pad. Most of the sheets in the stack will be identical pieces of the current Google Earth satellite image of Beijing. Other urban fabrics (in this case, Manhattan’s) of the same scale will be inserted randomly throughout the stack. Historical map of the same location in Beijing will also be inserted in the stack. All the game pieces will be mounted directly on to the wall. At the opening of the exhibition, the game pieces will compose a complete map of Beijing. Throughout the exhibition, participants are invited to tear away any square of their choosing, and discard the square to a trashcan placed near the installation. As more people participate, the map will change; Manhattan’s urban fabric will appear and disappear around the map throughout the game, but the map will remain undeniably Beijing.

The purpose of this “map game” is to test how the Beijing city map has mutated and will continue to do so while maintaining its own identity. No matter how many layers Beijing sheds as it grows to compete in the era of globalization; the city’s history is inevitably ingrained in its character. Beijing’s powerful ability to adapt will never compromise its iconic identity.
Design and Construction of a lobby addition in the XuJiaHui International Building, Shanghai, China
CONCEPT: Privacy in open spaces. Two very different functions share the same three-story
high lobby, a bank on one side and a mobile phone store on the other. My addition creates division without enclosing the height of the space. Movement. Addressing the lobby’s most basic function, connecting the main entrance of the ofﬁce tower to the elevators for a high volume of people, I introduced the concept of fluidity and motion.
