constructed for shenzhen’s biennale of urbanism\architecture, this bamboo installation considers potential working environments within a domestic setting. designed by studio makkink & bey, the ‘workscape theatre’ is divided into three sections containing the workplaces of the alumni of design academy eindhoven: dan adlešič, fiona du mesnildot, echo yang, hsiang-ching chuang, and xian zheng. the students were invited to create a collaborative exhibition that would generate a dialogue with those attending the event.

according to aaron betsky, curator of the biennale’s ‘collage city 3D’ section, we already have enough buildings and we are changing our cities into objects that imprison us. ‘what we need are designs that make better use of what’s already there. it’s important for us to reconsider, reuse and reconceptualize man-made environments,’ states betsky.
