‘ The 220,000 square meter pedestrian-oriented Linked Hybrid complex, sited adjacent to the site of old city wall of Beijing, aims to counter the current urban developments in China by creating a new twenty-first century porous urban space, inviting and open to the public from every side. Filmic urban public space; around, over and through multifaceted spatial layers, as well as the many passages through the project, make the Linked Hybrid an â€œopen city within a cityâ€. The project promotes interactive relations and encourages encounters in the public spaces that vary from commercial, residential, and educational to recreational. The entire complex is a three-dimensional urban space in which buildings on the ground, under the ground and over the ground are fused together. ‘

The new space is conceived as a continuation of the existing fence, wrapping it all, but hidden: expressing their new identity, not as constructed element, but as a re-forested. A new plant species grown in the surrounding area â€¦ the new scalar similarity between elements of â€œplantâ€ makes the proposal a new understanding of the link with the existing connection. ” Link here.

But what he does next may be even more labor-intensive. For his â€œ Babel Tales â€ photo series, Funch picked dozens of samey pedestrians â€” smokers, cell-phone gabbers, hospital-scrubs wearers, yawners â€” and Photoshopped them into the same frames. ‘ (via Very Short List)
