PublicTrailers© Shenzhen
WHAT: Performative urban tools for increasing the possibilities of public space WHY: The myth of Shenzhen is based on the breathtaking speed of its construction. Shenzhen had just a few decades to become a metropolis. Its urban fabric is full of potential, but the socio-economical and cultural transformations within city-life are seldom synchronized with the material construction. Public space has a fundamental role for the general aspect and function of the city. HOW: PublicTrailer© uses the power of the most ecological means of transport, the bicycle. It has the advantage to be flexible, small and of easy access. The bicycle plays a fundamental role in the history of urbanisation of China.
