Exhibit: City

TEAM: Huijing Zheng, Sabrina Yuen, Chenming Jiang, Yuan Wang – Chinese, Canadian – Southern California Institute of Architecture


Museum in the Expanded Field.

The museum is a beacon of human achievements. A building showcasing artefacts on pedestals and information printed on walls. The museum is also a monument. A single building within the urban landscape. Our project considers both of these notions and radically changes the way the museum displays human accomplishments, the content of the museum and how the museum interacts with the city.

Exhibit: City turns the entire urban city into a museum. Departing from the idea of a single monumental museum, multiple buildings within the city become activated and opened to become museum exhibits. These buildings, connected by a path which intersects through and winds around buildings to reveal the goings-on within, are functioning buildings which exemplify human achievements today and which are integral to our society. Buildings such as factories, water treatment facilities, food terminals, offices, distribution centres, and warehouses become sites of exploration and celebration. Occupants of Exhibit: City can observe daily activities within these essential buildings, traditionally closed off to the public, that make the everyday modern society possible. The content of the museum becomes a learning experience for the viewers, enriching their understanding of an otherwise unseen aspect of human life.
