• Art in Architecture

    27 June 2013

    In May, 10 DESIGN (10) hosted a 3rd annual art show at their architecture studio in Hong Kong.

    Likewise, art has been influenced in similar ways.  In view of this, 10 celebrates the Hong Kong Art Festival every year in May by hosting a contemporary visual art show at their art gallery, branded as ‘10+space’.  It is an adjoining and permanent gallery within their architecture studio.  At this year’s 10+space show, China Art Projects + Visual Arts Projects presented “MODUS OPERANDI”, digital arts exhibitions by island6.   It explores the human environment of the principal 21st century workplace: the office.

    A selection of 10’s latest work includes The Infinity Loop – Shizimen Gateway Bridge in Zhuhai; The Jenga Mall – Summer International Shopping Centre in Zhuhai;  and The Shipyard – Fujian Photonic College in Xiamen;  The Flowing Lines – Nanping Cultural Centre in Zhuhai; and The Centres of the Centre – The New Financial & Retail District in Chongqing.

    The 280-meter-tall Lumina Shanghai, developed by Henderson Land Group and designed by Gensler, is the tallest skyscraper in the Xuhui Riverside District.


    A sophisticated yet modern setting was derived by juxtaposition of Indochine-Vietnamese features and wood-fire inspired material palettes. Re-interpretation of the spatial order of a typical Indochine-Vietnamese mansion has been adopted to give hierarchy, layers and details to the space.
