Hood Design Studio // Designer: Walter Hood
The installation, for the Bi-City biennale of urbanism/architecture in Shekou Port in Shenzhen, China, explores the symbiotic relationships within the urban typology of the water village and the changing relationships village residents have had with the Pearl River Delta. Farmers reprocessed waste through the production of cash and subsistence products including upland planting (Mulberry trees) home to silk worms’ larvae. The project materials were sourced in and around Shenzhen, from markets and nurseries, to aquarium suppliers and manufacturers.
