Eighth anniversary campaign was kicked off, with the opening ceremony of the ‘ALL AROUND’ Urban Life Art Exhibition. Inspired by the urban life in Chengdu, we have curated a special exhibition to showcase the art of urban life in Chengdu. Eight groups of architects and artists from different fields have partnered with eight international brands to co-create eight independent experimental art spaces and eight exclusive creative concepts that embody the essence of urban life in Chengdu.
The Chinese character “八” (“Eight” in English) is composed of a left-falling stroke and a right-falling stroke, symbolizing that STL has entered a new chapter as depicted by the strokes in calligraphy. And its similarities to the shape of Chinese characters “入” (“Entrance” in English) and “人” (“Mankind” in English) pertain respectively to openness, connection, or creativity, diversity, inclusiveness, and people-oriented. The exclusive building at Temple Plaza integrates the concept of “Eight”. From a distance, it presents the artistic form and power of Chinese calligraphy’s distinctive “left and right strokes”, showcasing the unique charm of Chinese culture. The eight exhibition spaces housed beneath the strokes echo their literal meanings of “All Around”. Following the event, some of the carbonized bamboos will be disassembled into bamboo stools, achieving the recycling from buildings to public facilities and implementing the sustainable development concept of STL.
