Confluence20 Exhibition opens in Chicago

Confluence20+ exhibition opens today in Chicago, featuring 20 designers from Hong Kong including architecture, interior design, furniture, graphics, textiles, fashion, ceramics, products and art, including James Law Cybertecture’s art/architecture installation “Pod City Pod Living”

Pod City Pod Living is an art installation of miniaturised pod capsules which contain stereotyped lifestyles of a city, including a cafe, a barber shop, a rice shop, a restaurant and a caged living unit, all symbolising the life of Hong Kong inside pods which postulates a new architecture without buildings. Based on the real AlPod aluminium pod house designed by James Law Cybertecture, this installation is a conceptual exploration of how mobility and the city may one day be pod based. Pod City Pod Living featured in Confluence 20+ exhibition 2017 in Milan, Hong Kong, Seoul and Chicago.
