Shanghai International Warehouse

The project is going to take place in the west bund area of Shanghai, which is nowadays, link to contemporary art, but in the ancient time it had an industrial nature. The warehouse can host both the nature of the area where it is going to take place and the new wave of contemporary art and culture. Water and Huangpu river are the energy that generated our project and it dialogues with it. Shanghai International Warehouse acts as the boats, as floating piece of space, a place without a place, that exists by itself, that is closed in on itself and at the same time is given over to the infinity of the sea. It is a small point where international debates might be host; a box capable of collecting the culture of the time, the “Zeitgest”, the german expression, used during romanticism, for describing the contemporary trends in terms of cultural value, costumes, social relation and most important ways of living.
