Mirrored Gardens / Vitamin Creative Space, Guangzhou

Sou Fujimoto 

Located in the countryside close to Guangzhou in the south of China, the Mirrored Gardens project wishes to create a space where contemporary art, daily life, and agriculture come together and overlap. Being immerse in the countryside, far from the city, the project aims to generate a new creative experience where both artists and visitors interact with nature and with the local population.

Inspired in the traditional character of the surrounding villages, the new structures blend with their natural environment and recover the vernacular features of the farm sheds that used to stand on the plot. To minimize its impact on the landscape, the program is broken down into several small buildings that create a village-like ensemble. The use of local materials, as well as the reuse of elements recovered from nearby structures, contributes to blending the project with its site. Aside from the exhibition halls, the complex includes an office building area, a communal kitchen, a gallery and storage space, a small bookshop that is also a library, a guestroom, a workspace, and a series of outdoor pavilions spread over the field...
