Balmond Studio's ideas lab, TiP (Thinking in Practice) brings together the thinking, theory, and invention being explored by some of the world’s leading artists, design practitioners, theoreticians, and scientists in a single collective platform through interviews, essays, musings, and memos. TiP seeks to showcase original ideas, a piece of work that challenges the norm- something that pushes the boundaries, creating an alternate way of thinking. Essentially, Re-think 2017 is a celebration of vision, ambition and originality. The intent is to synthesize our spectrum of knowledge and promote new ways of thinking about our world.
The Judges' made the following comments:
" Innovative and original with real world potential, Wanqing’s concept impressed the judges. The Urban Beach Corridor is an architecture of resistance. A re-think that proposes new experiences and purpose through the demolishment of urban infrastructure, revealing the ‘Beach’. The ‘Beach’ is an undesignated public space that also acts as a tool to manage and control water usage in the city."
