On Paper Model

These are the models I made over the years. While putting the image together, I realised that almost all of them were made by paper and cardboard.
Paper is my favourite modelling tool. A lot of the concept can be quickly materialized by cutting, folding and gluing a piece of paper together. An ambiguous shape can be much more evocative than a definite one. Space, light and shade can all play a part in defining movement and stillness within a place.

Dwell on Dwellings | My Waipo's Place

Some of the earliest memories of my childhood have this house as a backdrop.
This is my grandmother’s place. My grandfather built it with his two sons in the late ‘70s. He was not an architect.
The house was situated in close proximity of Huang Pu River, Shanghai’s mother river. As part of the government's Slum Removal campaign, it was demolished in 2009.
