This street is all about food and consumerism, but at the backside of the billboards the real people live. At the most extreme we found a little makeshift house on a rooftop. It was facing the back of an enormous billboard, displaying a perfect smile to the streets. To break through the facades, clearing the view of both sides, we designed windows based on traditional Chinese wood works.
This project was a cooperation with Nanjing University of Technology 2007.
