This is the new released Macao Pavilion for 2010 Shanghai World EXPO, titled “Moon Rabbit Lantern”, by Carlos Marreiros. The iconic building is to represent the Rabbit year (1999) when Macao was returned to China.
Chinese Archi-Image Phenomena [CAIP] is a consortium of urban image theorists and architects speculating on architecture and image culture in contemporary China. The practice of CAIP exists in a world of extreme simulacra, as historical footnotes are shuffled and image realities are becoming perversely pervasive.
The co-founders Fei Wang (http://www.fei-wang.net) and Yan Wang work in China, USA and Canada.
