Team BLDG was commissioned by the Buddha artist Jiang Sheng to renovate the building into a new studio and exhibition space called The Field.
The building was originally a public bath of an aluminum factory. After the initial communication with the client, we gradually reached an agreement on the design concept: a hidden and even invisible architecture. The building is merely an intermedium to carry the Buddha statues and contain the essence of Buddhism, and is a "residence" for Buddha in the mundane world.
This project has been longlisted in the rebirth project category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
