Hinterland

Set in the context of the thriving industrial city of Shenzhen, this speculative project proposes an experiential facility that aims to educate the public on the dust in the air that is often unnoticed. The building itself functions as an air filter and makes visible the impact, weight and mass of dust. The immersive journey is a live cautionary tale on the effects of air pollution in the city.
