To Be The Better One · The Complete Map Of Capital Beijing
< 5/23 >

From June 19 to September 7 2021, as a collaboration by DAS and Syracuse University School of Architecture in 2021, the installation The Complete Map Of Capital Beijing is presented in the exhibition To Be The Better One organized by Wind H Art Center and acquired by Wind H for its collection.

The Complete Map of Capital Beijing is a contemporary copy of its original version from the Qing Dynasty, in which some most iconic Beijing architecture are collaged and mixed. In a 1:100 architectural diorama, the three-dimensional models are the results of some style transfer algorithms in which some classics of Western modern architecture are mixed with the language of Beijing vernacular constructions, growing from two-dimensional images. The creation process of this piece is a self-organized "game". Drawing Architecture Studio provides the framework of Capital Beijing and creative path. Students from Syracuse University School of Architecture freely fill in the framework while being regulated by a series of provisos on "style and language". Drawings and models become independent "selves" and construct an "independent world" on the architectural diorama.
