The project investigates the possible mutations of generic industrial architecture in the Pearl River Delta. Exterior walls are clad with typical tiles, through colors and pattern variations, transforming the perception of cheap materials. A new sky-bridge diagonally inserted between the old and new part of the factory results in an interstitial outdoor balcony with acid-etched glass floor, in-planting in the rational structure momentous flow, suspension, and spatial rhythm that changes with the natural light.
