Diamond Lattice Labyrinth (10,1) in honour of the National Day of The People’s Republic of China is illustrated in the previous post. I would like to employ it as a paving in Shenzhen City, where my elder son lives and works. Large open spaces seem to be rare in Shenzhen ( 深圳 ) and are in any case dwarfed by the new large INDOOR space at the latest Chinese marvel, Bao’an International Airport 国庆节深圳宝安国际机场. A lattice labyrinth paving is quite inappropriate for an international airport, which greenhorns like myself find quite sufficiently labyrinthine without being led astray by dragons on the floor. But, what the heck, here anyway is an artist’s impression of how it might look – a trainee architect’s impression actually, as it has been conjured up by my younger son, who is not very satisfied with the result but probably hasn’t the time to refine it.
At least its visual simplicity matches that of the canopy. Images to be found on the internet, like the original of the above, still tend to predate Bao’an’s opening – hence the lack of people and airport clutter.
