un-natural growing
It is part of an exhibition named as “Un-Natural” sponsored by Formica. The work is a result out of a series of experimental ideas, which sometimes appear in our architectural practice, and some of them have become the key word of our projects, whereas others still remains in our minds. These ideas are loosely connected, and we have been unable to give clear answers to these ideas yet, so what we can say is that these ideas relate to architecture and city, artificial and natural, agriculture and landscape, environment and lifestyle and other problems we must confront in our daily work and life. This exhibit tries to keep openness to all questions instead of pointing to a specific thought, which is the start of our experimental mind. Meanwhile, it is not limited to a certain scale, it can be as small as a decoration on the table or as large as a city. The span of scale corresponds to the multilevel nature of the problem.
这是为富美家赞助的名为“不自然”的展览所做的一件作品。这件作品是我们一系列试验性想法的结果,这些想法在我们平时的建筑实践中或隐或现,有的已成为某些设计的关键词。这些想法只有一些松散的联系,甚至这些想法我们目前还无法给予清晰的答案,我们只能说,这些想法关乎建筑与城市、人工与自然、农业与景观、环境与生活方式等等,都是我们日常工作与生活中所时时面对的。这件展品不明确指向某一个想法,而是尝试对所有问题保持开放性,它是我们这些试验性想法尝试的开始。这件展品同时超越了尺度,小到它可以是桌案上的摆设,大到是一个城市。尺度上的跨越同时对应了问题的多层次性。
