You are presented with an opportunity to express your vision for the revitalization and reuse of a silo in the former packaging (canning) factory complex of Redtory, in Guangzhou, China.
We offer an open brief. The aim is to create the space for young designers and artists. Considering the proposal’s range of possible program (creative spaces, design studios, workshops, galleries, design schools, machinery spaces for the industrial arts) the development should be capable of providing work space for more than one hundred design students and professionals.
The proposal should consider all areas inside and outside the buildings. We encourage participants to reactivate the unique silo, as well as the rooms, rooftops and gardens of the surrounding buildings. New structures can be added. There are no restrictions on floor area as long as rational justification is provided and the benefit for the community is evident.
