The project is an 80㎡exhibition hall of Shanghai Hotel & Commercial Space Engineering and Design Exhibition in 2017. The organizer invited 21 hotel management groups and design companies to build a model room in the designated area of the simulation space and to show for three days. We want to create a relaxed, free, mysterious and comfortable space, and in this space the most important is to feel a feeling.
The exhibition only last for 3 days, so space layout should meet the requirements of rapid deployment and timely demolition, and it’s not suitable for large capital budget. So I chose to use recyclable, removable and relatively cheap building materials to do the design of the substrate.
At the same time, we have to consider the flow of people on the show more intensive situation,we finally chose the translucent advertising grid cloth and steel structure to build the house facade. Translucent closed space can effectively divert the crowd in the exhibition, it can make the chaotic environment into a relatively quiet and orderly environment, while the indoor and outdoor people will not be completely isolated, everyone can also feel the existence of each other, this kind of static and "moving" state, will allow exhibitors in the relaxed and also feel a sense of tension, it makes the target people do not consciously improve the efficiency of doing things.

In the concrete space, I set up a large bubble sphere with concave-convex texture, it formed a black and white contrast and the feeling of mutual interaction with the suspended birds in the air.A soft bed, a comfortable desk, a nice sofa, a white environment, everything shows comfortable in capable and experienced, everything shows fine in the minimalist, and every corner hides the sense of the screen for people to find.
As the time goes, when the indoor light changes, the indoor feeling will be a corresponding change. Especially at noon, when a strong light shines inside the room after filtering through translucent advertising cloth, the light will become softer. The people in the room can vaguely see the people walking outside and the people outside can vaguely see the changes in the house, This environment can give people a sense of comfort, but also to the people who has a conversation a sense of security.
The exhibition lasts only 3 days, it is very short just like a flash in the pan, what we have to do is to provide a place to the people from afar for visit, conversation, being tension and having a rest. While taking into account the capital and manpower input costs, we will let the short 3 days show as much as possible to play its effectiveness, and strive to make "beauty" left the impression in the memory of everyone.
