In Factory is a redevelopment project for an abandoned industrial area in the centre of a Chinese megalopolis. The surfaces in “In Factory” lie vertically and horizontally; they are opaque, transparent (the effect of the “walls” created by a succession of metal rods), changeable (the American vine varies its aspect with each season), but above all they reflect the light (like the treated steel of the benches and the horizontal surfaces of the “ceiling”). The result is a space which interacts with the density of the environment, particularly in the main courtyard, where a touch to the rods can generate a vibrating sound, and where the lamps, hanging at different levels, swing with the movement of the wind. The project is finely tuned to the use of materials and colours.
