Residential Design: Live-Work Studio

138 South Park Street
San Francisco, CA 94107

Project Proposal: Live-Work Studio for installation artist, Ai Weiwei. We explored the relationship between client and designer and stressed the importance of understanding the client’s needs and requirements and how they affect design. Ai Weiwei, born 18 May 1957 in Beijing, is a Chinese contemporary artist, active in sculpture, installation, architecture, curating, photography, film, and social, political and cultural criticism.

Concept: Chess is a powerful game, it takes a level of understanding yourself, your opponent as well as the game itself. Ai Weiwei uses the most aggressive words to point out the Chinese Government’s dark side. He is a chess player in this ongoing and controversial relationship. Transparency is his battleground and he fights for what he believes deserves to be revealed or belong to the public.This is what his fight is about.
