You and I, in our teens and twenties, had such impulses and ideals, and do such things. I want this life.
——安藤忠雄《青春展》Tadao Ando: Youth
“I wonder if you’ll have the courage to come again if you had learned about your life ahead of time. It can often be frustrating for what you have seen and heard. But if you had a chance to see your life in advance, knowing that youth is only for these days, I wonder whether you still care about what the world wants you to care about.”
Bloom Bookstore, co-sponsored by The 2021 Guangzhou Design Week and OWSPACE, commissioned SDO Studio to design their exhibition hall in Guangzhou. Based on “Bloom”, the theme of 2021 Design Week, as the philosophy and premise of creation, the design aims to reshape the display pattern of the exhibition to wake up the once beautiful youth for everyone.

A series of responses were made targeting at the requirements of three groups (media staff, honored guests, sponsors) in the design, such as the arrangement of a live broadcast room and rest area for media staff, a lounge for honored guests, as well as the display of sponsors’ products, etc.. While meeting the design function, it also gives the design response of humane care.

Cube boxes with various colors such as red, yellow, white, blue, and orange, supplement each other with the surrounding wood joists and solar panels, to create a blurry aesthetics. The boxes with five colors, layer upon layer, look like rolling mountain ranges. Among the blurry feeling, the box is like a colorful rainbow falling from the clouds into the earth, beautiful as a dream.

As an enduring classic game, Tetris carries the youth of countless children in the 1980s and 1990s. It features simple game rules and easy accessibility in which the player places small boxes that are automatically output from the top of screen by moving and rotating them.

The design takes “Tetris” as the starting point, divides it into individual units, reorganizes and updates it according to the requirements of function and site, and becomes a new round of “output blocks from the screen” to refresh the memory in your heart.

“Deconstruction and reorganization”
In the design concept, the deconstruction and reorganization of elements is a very complicated process. It not only follows certain rules, but also needs to decompose materials, break the rules and restrictions between them, and recombine them.During the reconstruction, the designer introduced the classical Russian colors, in order to facilitate the division of important connections in the large display space, such as the reception, the main exhibition area and partitions, etc..

The membrane lights in the ceiling are embedded in the wooden joist frame in the form of strips, which is not only homogeneous with the enclosing wall material, but also is full of sense of technology. When the switch is turned on, the light leaps out, just as the light will come when Batman leaves out of the night.
