An abandoned packaging district in Guangzhou China, known as Redtory, is being renewed and repopulated: converting derelict warehouse buildings into artist lofts and studios. This international competition proposal revives a massive abandoned silo into the district's iconic center for creation and display by embodying and expressing the creative process in built form.
The creative process is not linear, but a transient movement between tangible and ethereal, practical and experimental. Researching other artists completed work informs ones final design, and the iterative nature of that design process refines the product. Once presented, this final design can inform the next creator and start the entire creative process anew.
The silo allows for seamless interaction between disciplines and minimizes the boundary between individual and collaborative design, while the projecting bridges display artist' work; analogously inviting the viewer into the mind of the artist.
