I do not have the strength to be a trash can, nor am I qualified to be a wish box, I just want to be an ordinary person, to be comforted and loved by others.

— Honoré de Balzac

When I received the call inviting me to design, I was in the mountains on a land grant. In the intermittent signals I learned that the land was on the border between the old and new city in a northernmost city of Jiangsu. The client hoped that I could create a different kind of demonstration center at the narrow junction.
