The installation shows the results of a research on local materials. Common construction materials have been selected and recombined to create a collection of different construction patterns. The idea moves from the previous architectural works by Ramoprimo practice and from the street explorations of Instant Hutong, such as the “Theory of Moments” project on which local materials and objects found in dilapidated courtyard houses in Beijing have been recombined and reassembled to create temporary public spaces. Combining different types of materials, glass, wood, bricks, metal, mirror, plastic, the designers aim to set an open interactive workshop in the form of a large study platform to explore configurations and possibilities: a catalogue to inspire and suggest combinations and solutions to be used as a reference tool for future construction purposes in the neighborhood.
