Entry Description

The inspiration of �XANG XIA� comes from the observation of old house renovations, which architects retain the original structure as the new interior�s materials or support, different from the general modular ways.

To reinforce this image, I re-created the building materials into new materials to seal the past time. I chose the techniques of terrazzo to complete as the furniture surface, and the traditional copper strip inlaid on the floor as the support structure. I collected the materials of old houses, and used the techniques of poured terrazzo to form a new matrix except a sharp objects.
