DESCRIPTION (ENG)

Let´s celebrate Rain

We love Rain, we hate Rain, we Cantons LIVE Rain

Have you ever seen the colour of Rain?

A shelter shields us from the weather. A shelter can be simple, a house, a cave, a space suit, an umbrella.

The hawker centre embodied the simplest manifestation of a shelter – a shelter to cook, eat and interact.

Have you thought of an inverted umbrella, the nature of the umbrella changes radically when it is simply invert it became a rain collector.

We are creating a collective Rain Collector, let´s flesh out the true colour, the sound and the poetics of Rain.

讓我們歌頌雨

我們熱愛雨,我們討厭雨,但粵人卻“雨“我常在。

你見過雨的顏色?

屏障把我們從嚴峻的天氣中庇護起來。屏障可以是簡單的;一所房子,一個山洞,一件太空服,一把雨傘。

小販檔柔合了一個基本屏障的元素-體現了一個最簡單的房間的工能: 一個做飯,吃飯和互動的地方。

你有否想過一個倒置的傘其實就是一個雨水收集器? 把傘反起其實只需要一個很簡單的動作, 但傘的本性郤產生了180度的轉變。

我們在創造一個雨水收集器,讓我們帶山“雨“真實的顏色, 真實的聲音, 真實的詩意。
