NOTE:

Conservation of architecture is not only a matter of reserving history and physical space. Architectural renovation is also more than recycling old buildings for new functions. The reconversion of the former Guangdong Floating Glass Factory is an experiment of rediscovering the lost spatial existence and experience via architectural study on contemporary industrial relics. We expected new possibilities to architecture and urbanism can be unveiled for contemporary Chinese cities.
