Design-Lin is back in Montreal !

For my first solo exhibit at McGill School of Architecture, I have summarized my work in Asia from the past 6 years.
This exhibition, entitled After the games / 100 days in Asia, represents a series of
photography, sketches, paintings and videos which refers to my personal experience in Asia.
The primary focus of my research for the John Bland Scholarship is the Industrialized cities of China, especially
the buildings & infrastructures built for the 2008 Beijing Olympics and 2010 Shanghai expo. Faced with the high
maintenance costs, many cities try different tactics to increase visitor flow and
repurposing the mega-structures after the games. Some are more successful than others.
In order to gain a better understanding, I have also visited other case studies in
Tokyo (1964 Olympics) and in Sydney (2000 Olympics).

This research takes place in a larger context of my personal trip in Asia which lasted three months and includes
cities such as Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Ayutthaya, Ho Chi Ming (Saigon), Hanoi, Hong Kong, Xian,
Taipei & more.

This exhibit is open to the public until September 26th.
