KAPKAR / DPF-4B | The Sea of Time
2019 Bi-City Biennale of Shenzhen
Dapeng Fortress New District, Shenzhen, China

Shenzhen is a city that was founded only 40 years ago, the area however has been inhabited for hundreds of years. This awareness should be much more part of the cultural identity of this tech metropolis. I therefore consider Dapeng an anchor point in the historical awareness of Shenzhen. The fort village that is just a few steps away from the sea forms an interesting contrast with the surrounding leisure environment of the seaside resort and the urban typology around it.

KAPKAR / DPF-4B is a sculpture that has been designed with location specific elements from Dapeng Fortress as the starting point. It uses the reinterpretation of local building elements. The buttresses of the granary, the stacking of architectural wooden structures in Chinese architecture, and the faint gable roofs that are everywhere present there. These three elements have been brought together in a new futuristic appearance that with its orange color forms a fascinating contrast with the historic environment. Elements from the past have been placed back in the environment in a transformed way and give a completely different perspective on the local building culture.

Visitors may use the sculpture as a seating element. In the evening the object gives a soft mysterious light as a beacon in the darkness.

深圳特区成立于40年前,而此前此地已有百年历史,这部分历史应该更好地成为这座科技之都的一部分。因此,我认为大鹏应该作为开启深圳历史意识的锚点。这座围村离海边度假胜地只有几步之遥,却与海边现代化的建筑群落行成鲜明的对比。

混合建筑》是一座结合了大鹏所城当地特色作为起点元素设计而成的雕塑。作品对当地的建筑特色作了全新的诠释,将其中三大元素——大鹏粮仓的扶壁,中式建筑层层叠叠的木质结构以及随处可见的人字形屋顶融为一体,形成了具有未来主义特点的外观,雕塑颜色使用的是橙黄,与古朴的环境相得益彰。传统的元素通过全新的诠释重新融入到当前的建筑环境,展现出当地建筑文化完全不同的一面。

在功用方面,过往游客还可以把雕塑作为凉椅使用。到了晚上,该物件像灯塔一样在黑暗中发出柔和神秘的灯光。
