    shan shan sheng's the 'open wall project' at the venice art biennale, makes suggestions to the contemporary opening of china to the global economy and stands as a place for the unprecedented exchange of ideas. the sculpture which is meant to be a reconstruct of the great wall of china, indicates moments of transparency and opacity, marking this critical intersection of chinese and western culture.

    located along venice's historic grand canal, the temporary pavilion is made up of 2,200 stacked glass bricks, each brick represents the number of years which it took to build the great wall. the glass blocks become a kind of cultural currency which can be moved, redistributed, subtracted and added duration of the installation, expressing the transitory process of globalization.

    NL architects have designed the taipei performing arts center aiming to make the building accessible to everybody. the public character of the center is guaranteed by the elevation of a substantial part of its program, creating a public square underneath it. as such the square becomes part of the building inside of it.

    the design which could be considered to a table with 'four legs' supports a 'tabletop' that accommodates 3 storeys. inside you'll find an elevated fragment of the city, a public browsing space where cultural facilities such as a multimedia library, music stores, galleries, lobbies, bars, restaurants and clubs will be included.

    balconies and terraces with different programs will also be included in the space consisting of swimming pools, a skate area, playground, hotel garden and cafe.

    the performing arts center structure will contain three theaters: a 1500 seat grand theater and two 800 seat theaters for repertory performances. the theaters are positioned on different altitudes. the proscenium playhouse is placed at the base of the southeast 'leg'. the lobby is placed under this theater so that it is flush with the square activating the space around it. the multiform theater is connected to the southwest leg close to the top. the volume of the grand theater is suspended under the horizontal slab. it hovers over the square while being part of it.

  • XVI Chilean Architecture Biennale / Assadi + Pulido

    Communication, Industrial Design


    The proposal for the installation of the XVI Architecture Biennale starts with the selection of the venue: The Contemporary Art Museum at the Forestal Park. Even if the building wasn´t big enough to host the Biennale, it had plenty of virtues for the event: a centric location with good accessibility, immersed on the most important park in Santiago, but mostly because it has one of the most significant variables for this installation: the possibility to extend the Biennale to a wider audience, not only to the architects. Opening the exhibition on the specific context “Towards an architecture that cares about our planet”, results in an exposure of our affairs to the public, on an open plaza tied to a space on where each part of the exhibition allows for an open exchange of information.
