We were commissioned by the Buddha artist Jiang Sheng to design the exhibition space for his new exhibition “VOID”. The site of the exhibition is a small theater of The Dome Studio in Beijing.
Inspired by the Indian stepwells, we decided to design the space without color attributes and decorative elements. Using simple geometric shapes to create a layered sense of order in the site – a dramatic, “empty room” with only undulating topography and air. We did not set any rigid partitions in the space, so that the exhibits can be freely placed on the platforms.
