Let's Talk About the Weather: Art and Ecology in a Time of Crisis is an exhibition addressing urgent issues around a changing climate, future ecological disaster, and what this means for our present moment. The challenge was to turn a very elongated volume with irregular openings, located on the rooftop of three residential buildings in Guangzhou into a dynamic exhibition space, while working closely with multidisciplinary local and international artists.
Taking into consideration the elongated layout of the museum and its orientation, we proposed a design that optimizes the flow of circulation in the exhibition and makes use of the natural light. We did that by tilting the partition walls towards the north, therefore. At the entrance, we created a large wall made of re-used paper tubes to promote reuse and sustainable practices, mitigating the environmental footprint in the art industry.
