Critical Territories presents the work of two practices, GroundLab and Plasma Studio, which share a trans disciplinary approach and operate at multiple scales, from product and building design to landscape and master-planning.

The installation – a site-specific grid arrangement of light boxes covered with technical drawings – has been conceived to immerse visitors in the systemic approach of the practices and their preoccupation with grids, ground and context. A range of conceptual and presentation models floating loosely within this grid communicate recurring aims, ideas and spatial and phenomenological effects. Among the projects on show there is the Xian International Horticultural Expo and the Longgang Masterplan (Deep Ground Project).
