Daipu was invited to 2017 Taikang Space “BUILDING ISSUES” Autumn Exhibition


The 2017 Taikang Space “BUILDING ISSUES” autumn group exhibition is opened to the public on October 28th. Daipu, the founder&director architect of Daipu Architects, has received the invitation to take part in the exhibition. It is worth mentioning that the exhibition space is also designed by Dai Pu/Daipu Architects. He assumes the whole space as a virtual brain of an architect, hoping the visitors can perceive the knowledge structure and interest of this contemporary architect with the process of visit/invasion, which coincides with the purpose of the exhibition.


Back to an exhibited artist, Daipu creates an artwork called “Anti – domino No.03: urbanized high-rise”. Anti-domino is not just for the opposition, but is reflection upon the city’s existing “boring structure” that inspires rethinking and redefinition. He creates a virtual anti-domino prototype structure – “anti – domino No.03: urbanized high-rise”, with the help of the simulation of the natural forces acting as a catalyst.


By breaking the existing “boring structure”, the interior space and urban environment can exchange energy more easily. Via interaction between the public and the new installations, we further discuss the rethinking of existing urban spaces and the possibility of reconstruct. Based on this, future urban architecture will not only be defined by the footprint on land, but may also be circulated and developed in various dimensions at any level. This will be a multi-dimensional city, creating a new form of spatial coordinate system.


In the exhibition, people can apply different colors of playing doughs in different positions of the installation, and define, through miniature models, different ways of using the terrain. Through this process, the architect merely redefines the possibilities in the spaces, while the usage right of the spaces is handed over to the public.
