New Calendar

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. 

quiz: on which date was this photo taken?

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.

Vox Gigs Cover (Dec 2017)

Posted on Categories selected works, graphicTags , , , , ,

There are two things attracted us immediately when we received the mail post from coco.

One was the seal ‘航空 PAR AVION’, it’s so good looking. We’ve only seen the blue sticker with ‘AIR MAIL’. It’s just not comparable with the red seal on the kraft paper. Chinese with French in great typeface, super. Just beautiful.

We Were Wrong about The Correct Side of Pillow Case and Bed Sheet

Posted on Categories think twice, selected worksTags , , ,

It is not rare to see someone wearing t-shirt outside in, like the one below. He just discovered the mistake, feeling a bit embarrassed mentally and uncomfortable physically. Common sense strongly suggests us the correct way of wearing/producing clothes is decoration outside, if there is decoration. We need decoration to satisfy people’s eyes. The inner side that closely touches our body ensures our maximum comfort. It has to be soft, pure, and natural. In conclusion, when we wear correctly, we feel being ‘covered’, we feel warm, safe, comfortable, and confident.

Arch within Arch (GB1610384.8) (2013-16): A telescopic structure (1a, 1b and 1c) operates on a sliding mechanism (2) and moves to expose the overlaying arch viaduct (3) and permit periodic servicing – addressing a legal requirement that restricts ixtures within the arch. The structure is mobile and formed of sandwiching construction for acoustic and thermal insulation (4). This structure is isolated on vibration pads (5) and loats off the ground to absorb the vibration from passing trains. A solar reflective foil (6) works with sun paths to collect, reflect and amplify daylight and naturally illuminate the dark interior spaces. © Undercurrent Architects

Orange’s Mushroom

Orange’s mushroom (Amanita citrus sinensis)

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.

Glass for A Blind Child

This is the last competition we participated and lost in 2015. The competition has been sponsored by a glass company for the past decades, many topics therefore were closely connected with glass. This year is the 50 year anniversary, they made a anniversary-feeling topic — “the glass”, asking participants rethink the role of glass in architecture.

Granted Calendar

Posted on Categories selected works, productTags , , , ,

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.
