Platforms for Dialogue
Whilst urbanist Su Yunsheng, founder of etopia, has been exploring ways of responding to the need for physical shelter for a humanity on the move, Petra Johnson has investigated non-material forms of shelter. At Design Week Shanghai, 9th – 11th October at the Exhibition Centre, 1000 Yanan Lu these two approaches are presented together. The new prototype ‘egloo’ by Su Yunsheng and the booklet ‘Can you hear me’ designed by artist/architect Xu Zhifeng and Petra Johnson about their collaborative project ‘kioskxiaomaibu’ will be launched alongside each other.
