Shenzhen University Students Tour Sliced Porosity Block – Raffles City

New images from Xi Chen and his Shenzhen University students highlight the dramatic interplay between light and material over the course of an afternoon at Sliced Porosity Block – Raffles City in Chengdu, China. Reflecting pools situated within the sprawling micro-urban plaza act as skylights to the shopping precinct below, casting soft dappled natural light onto passers by.  At the end of the tour, The Light Pavilion by Lebbeus Wood quietly began to glow, illuminating and activating the plaza into the night.
