The Ming Dynasty painter Qiu Ying has a painting called "Taoyuan Wonderland" which meticulously depicts the life hidden in the mountains: green mountains and clear water. Several people who are detached from the world are sitting down by the creek and enjoying nature.
IADC chief designer, Mr. Alessio Chengzhe Zhang was inspired by the masterpieces of Chinese landscape painters, applying the green, pink and white symbols of the pastoral forests to this quaint space.
Since the year 907 AD, the Chinese people’s ambiguity about the Taoyuan space has gone through a series of evolutions from earthly legends to images of physical space, finally being transformed from the abstract into something which can be incorporated into everyday life, where the Tao Yuanming space was replaced by the living room.
The narrative of Wonderland is the most profound. In the modern urban environment, the industrialized environment has been separated from the natural environment.
With the design of the reception space of the Shanghai Junyu Mansion, IADC Design aims to regain the ideal space of cultural heritage and create a natural and spiritual living space with modern design features.
