The Made in Shanghai Project recovers the most conspicuous and easily ignored urban genes. From the city landmark to illegal structures, from public space to urban ruins, we collect the cards of our city and the deserted architecture unknown to public. Separating from each other, juxtaposing together, intervening and interacting, overlapping with each other, these typical and untypical architecture and urban space constitute a mixed and represented Shanghai. Through refraction, filtering and deformation, the final urban landscape created from the extracted urban genes becomes both familiar and unfamiliar to us. Different viewers may have his own memory, desire and imagination of Shanghai, all of which is totally a collage heterotopia.
