The architectural design team share their current inspirations.
Rossana Hu: Alfred Hitchcock is really interesting for the way he moves through his lenses, the layers he adds. The voyeuristic images he includes in many of his films have been quite influential for us.
Lyndon Neri: I’ve been fascinated by On Photography, by Susan Sontag. It talks about how photography as a medium is quite invasive. It’s almost a licence for people to ask you to pose, but try it without a camera and everyone’s going to look at you funny.
RH: I had my phase with social media, including the WeChat app, or 菓斤. It inundates you with short excerpts of news and literature, images and so on. I enjoy reading them, but once in a while you realize it’s such piecemeal information, you can get lost in it.
