The effort began through an interest in tensegrity and robotic structures and has been informed by the vernacular. Inspired by local materials, manufacturing and construction methods, along with the molecular structure of carbon, the project utilizes 3D printed nodes, and other cladding and strut materials on a journey toward novel and utilitarian structures.

For deepening the cultural research and academic exchanges between Wenzhou and other regions in the world, and discovering new ideas on cultural integration, the “Intercultural Dialogue: Understanding Wenzhou from a Global Perspective” serial lectures, held by Wenzhou Culture, Broadcasting and Tourism Bureau, organized by Wenzhou Museum is on the way. In these serial lectures, five professors from Wenzhou-Kean University are going to address some specific subjects concerning culture and history of Wenzhou city from their own research interests respectively, aiming at cultivating an intercultural dialogue between Wenzhou and the world. Meanwhile, it also intends to invite more people worldwide to have a deeper understanding of Wenzhou’s long historic heritages and unique cultural genes.
