DPA-X at the 8th Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism and Architecture of Shenzhen and Hong Kong

Futian Station, Shenzhen – December 22, 2019 / March 2020

DPA-X, the research lab at Dominique Perrault Architecture presents an installation at the Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism and Architecture in Shenzhen and Hong Kong. This edition of the Biennale, entitled “Urban Interactions”, will discuss the effects of digital technologies in the built environment.

DPA-X’s installation will display the Gangnam Intermodal Transit Center in Seoul, Korea, the winning project of a 2017 international competition won by the firm. In this project, multiple services will be built underground, under one of the most important avenues of the new business district of the South-Korean capital. It will also connect to other existing buildings. A public place and a light beam will be the only two visible elements at ground level. 

Through this installation, DPA-X aims at showing that underground intermodal poles not only materialize the connectivity of the digital age, they also represent a new type of architectural object that will further be developed in the years to come.
