Let’s say you would live for 100 years, and you would start to use calendar from day one. In this case, you would use at least 100 normal calendars, maximum 44 Calendar Rolls, or, 1 New Calendar.
And that’s not the end of the story. After 100 years, you can surely pass your New Calendar to someone else who can surely pass the no-longer-yours New Calendar further down.Continue reading New Calendar
We rolled two years and three months into one roll. As you expected, it’s called Calendar roll.
We use minimum package to help you avoid thinking on “oh the package is so cute, what should I do with it? it’s a shame to throw away!”. No logos too — you know it’s from us.Continue reading Calendar Roll
Amanita citrus sinensis, commonly known in english as orange’s mushroom. It might remind you its lovely tasted, posh but a little bit tricky cousin Amanita caesarea, commonly known in english as Caesar’s mushroom. If you happen to know Chinese, you may find that orange’s mushroom and Caesar’s mushroom unreasonably share the same name in Chinese. Nothing can be more confusing than that. Despite name and appearance, they have nothing in common.Continue reading Orange’s Mushroom
People write plans on calendar. That’s why many calendars leave space for writing. But it’s boring. That’s why you only do it on the first 2-3 days every year:
1 January: Change myself this year
2 January: Must write down my plan everyday
A horror story: Imagine you are 100 years old and you take out 100(-6) different looking calendars and found the same thing written on the same place, while the rest were left empty.Continue reading Granted Calendar
In his 30s, our artist friend CK asked us to design his apartment. In our near 30s, together with his new media studio, we did an illuminated tower in Wuhan. Surely, at the beginning, nobody knew there would be a tower.Continue reading The Tower
The green cycle path that runs through the heart of Thyssen-Krupp Steel’s large industrial site offers visitors a chance to pass through a monumental industrial landscape. Still in operation, 24 hours a day, here one is lost in time and adrift in history.Continue reading Landstrich
Thanks to the big window facing east, our bedroom is filled with sunshine from early morning till noon in clear days. During the period of not being too cold, say from late spring to early autumn, we would open the window and let our pillows sunbathe there.Continue reading Instant Holiday
In front of the building we live, there are three trees, standing in snow. We collected some snow and made a pot for the smallest one. Then it stood in a pot but not snow. Continue reading Tree Pot
Castagneti is the name of the street where we live. We’ve been here for more than 4 years. This project was done two months after newly settling in the area, during the Christmas period of 2013.Continue reading Auguri, Via Castagneti!
In limited time of site survey, architects collect information by observing, taking notes, sketching, photographing, taking video, talking to locals etc.. When they are back in office, they make sense out of them, giving birth to report, diagram and site model. By then, the whole team can get a good understanding of the site especially by look at the site model talking about the site, away from site.Continue reading Rooming a Space
We made Cold to celebrate Yoko’s birthday. Yoko had been thinking for having a pinwheel for a long time. Therefore we decided to DIY some and put them together in a meaningful way.
It was just another autumn-like summer day in Valsassina, wet and chilly. A trembling character came into our mind. It was 冷 (lĕng), a Chinese character meaning cold in English. We made it out of pinwheels and put on the wall where strong wind arrives. In this way it materialized man’s sensation of ‘cold’ in an interactive way, and at the same time make the room even colder…Continue reading Cold
Tao got an iPhone from his uncle ages ago. It ended the old and good days of using his b&w NOKIA. Tao had thought to get a cover, but the price made him hesitant.Continue reading Cover Me!

In response to the theme “re-appropriation” of MIAW 2010, we wanted to dig out some hidden values in the campus. In the building of architecture school, during breaks, people chat outside the classroom while lean against handrails, on which coffee cups or coke tins can always be found. People do it naturally. But the performance of handrail could be better. By just adding wooden boards, we found the potential of handrail lying in its width. Finally, it was proved to be highly welcomed.Continue reading Pausa Café
