The Vanished House by Field Conforming Studio

Field Conforming Studio has created a work for the second East Lake International Ecological Sculpture Biennale that invites remembrance of people and places past.


The venue for the exhibition was Wuhan Shimenfeng Memorial Park, a cemetery with beautiful environment and a tranquil spatial atmosphere. As a place where the deceased rest peacefully, the venue has an ambience suitable for memorial and mourning activities.

The work presents a house covered in sprawling ivies. Standing as a symbol of hearth and home, the detached house leaves a space formed by the enveloping creepers. Designed to be a simple structure in the manner of a child's sketched interpretation, the minimal form adds simplicity and purity to the work, while the intricate patterns of the creepers introduce more sophistication.

The result is the remembrance of a vanished living space and of people and things past.


This project has been longlisted in the installation design category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
