In order to elaborate the theme “Freespace” the team probed into spaces with local flavour and explored elements of interaction between people and daily spaces: from the open air market at Rua da Emenda, the pathways of Lou Lim Ieoc Garden, the densely populated high-rise buildings, up to the stairway of the Ruins of St. Paul’s, the “interaction” existing within these places inadvertently creates a characteristic space that blends with daily life and a sense of human touch. It was precisely in this manner that the team conceived the concept of “Unintended Architecture”.
Through different sizes, shapes, textures and arrangements, the “playing cards” transform and leave blank (white space) in complex spaces, simplifying them into elements that symbolise Macao and creating four exhibition spaces with four different themes. The blanks allow viewers to project their own feelings, memories and imagination, thereby experiencing the “Unintended Architecture”, perceiving spatial traits through interaction and reflecting on the harmonious relationship established between people and space.
Closed on Mondays (except 28 May, 13 August, 3 September and 19 November), open from Tuesday to Thursday from 10am to 6pm, and from Friday to Sunday (until 29 September) from 10am to 8pm.
