A Walled Oasis

The wall and the movement route create a constructive spatial experience through series of polyphonic overlap between active and passive, horizontal and vertical accent, and dark and light.

Together with infinitesimal details and modified function, the abandoned site becomes a new public place. In the process, it explores a new way to locate itself in the context physically, culturally and psychologically.
