recognizing that recreational vehicles, or RVs, have never been particularly popular in china, the shanghai international autocity group (SIAC) decided to commission the project in order to bring attention to the possibilities of the vehicles. responding to the brief, naturalbuild sought to find a balance between inclusiveness and exclusiveness by creating a space that is half-unified and half-divided.
