      This short trailer is cut from a 10 minute presentation video I created for James Corner Field Operations. 'Qianhai Water City' was awarded First Prize in the International Competition for the Planning of the Qianhai Region of Shenzhen, beating out 10 other invited design teams including OMA/Rem Koolhaas, BLAU Architecture and Urbanism, Bjarke Ingles Group, SWA, and Nikken Sekke among others. The project site includes 4,500 acres of reclaimed land surrounding Qianhai Harbor on the western coast of Shenzhen. Upon implementation, Qianhai is envisioned to be the financial, logistics and service hub of Shenzhen, and a major new urban center – a “Manhattan” -- in the Pearl River Delta mega-region, linking Hong Kong to Shenzhen and Guangzhou. The JCFO scheme envisions a new “Water City” for 1.5 million people. The design is dense, compact, mixed, sustainable and centered around the area’s most important resource – water.

              Jinhui Huang. Projections of global maritime trade have thus far been heavily based on the productivity of individual administrative regional boundaries. In the map of “Merchandise Export of WTO members”, the economic value of a country is gauged by the monetary worth of its exports. And yet, how accurate is to depict the world economy based on the contribution of every inscribed national boundary? I would argue that this method of representing the economic power of the world has become obsolete as soon as one speaks about globalization. Globalization has transcended the administrative borders that once demarcated land ownership, resource allocation, labor force, technological advancement and manufacturing intensities, all of which demonstrated the quality of goods as well as the legimitacy of a country’s resourcefulness. From the world of “made in U.S.A.” to a world of “designed in California, made in China, and mined in Brazil”, it appears that our methods of representing the economic world still reside in the paradigm of the Industrial Revolution. I would also argue that the content of the UN projection is contradictory to the methodology of the projection. In order to talk about global economies, we need to discuss the neglected mechanisms that first enabled global merchant trade: maritime trade.

                  Video by Gabriela Splendore, Katarzyna Hanna Michalik and Mariana Catta Preta. Toxic Denim is a video based on true events taking place on Pearl River Delta in Guangzhou, China. The river is extensively polluted due to the manufacture industry near its banks. Toxic Denim questions the blue blood and its sense, the dualism of the post-modernism world’s consequences underpinning the fashion industry abuse of mass production. The video contrasts the working lower class with the high consumerism of our society today.
