chinese firm atelier feichang jianzhu (FCJZ) recently designed the china design now exhibition that was on display at the cincinnati art museum. around one hundred designers were featured in a display that focuses on architecture, fashion, and graphic design as well as film, photography, product and furniture designs, youth culture and digital media.

the exhibition took the form of a journey through three rapidly expanding cities—beijing, shanghai, and shenzhen—each a starting point for the exploration of different design fields the idea for the exhibition design was to materialize three distinctive urban experiences through the interplay between different materiality, texture, light transmission and construction method: for shenzhen (frontier city) the structure was hung from ceiling using various plastic materials; showed the development of graphic design from the early 1990s to the present day; shanghai (dream city) the structure extended from wall to floor; showing fashion and lifestyle from the mid-1990s to present day using thin translucent fabrics; beijing (future city) the structure was laminated from the floor; showing architecture and urban planning spanning from 2001 to the present day using opaque blocks.
