The Dinghaiqiao neighborhood of Shanghai inhabitants tend to create their own urban landscape, their own urban furniture, their own working settlement. Every chunk of wall becomes an opportunity to fix a local issue, turning it into a flexible space that has the ability to gather multiple functions. This group project for a three-day workshop with Meiji University and Hong Kong University aims to enhance human interactions, incorporating necessary amenities into a three-dimensional wall. While some walls are built to divide, Urban Excursus gathers.
