The Tulou Open House Project is a site-specific creative experiment, collective residency, and cultural conference taking place for its inaugural edition this June at a traditional tulou (土楼) in rural Fujian Province.
Tulou Open House, the project co-organized by New Territories, Studio Yao Yao and URB (Urbanus Research Bureau), finally kicks off this weekend! For those of you who couldn’t make it to the Tulou (土楼) in Fujian Province, follow along with our blog as the event unfolds!
In case you’re in Hong Kong, for ARTHK or otherwise, please stop by the Tulou Open House preview event on May 14 – this project has been in the works for quite a while, and we’re very excited to finally share it. Official press release to follow.

This Monday, please swing by Afterschool Cafe for a preview of the Tulou Open House project 2012 – a temporary, site-specific creative experiment and mini-conference taking place this June at a traditional Tulou (round earthen house) in Fujian Province. During this open-ended “expedition”, a diverse group of artists and scholars from greater China will explore the structure, symbolism, and everyday life of the Tulou as a laboratory for new projects and collaborations, a fresh lens for the concept of creative community, and a potential site for expansive future projects at the Tulou and beyond. The event will culminate in a public “Open House” event on the weekend of June 8-10, which is open to visitors and the local community alike, and will stage a program of talks, screenings, workshops, performances, guided tours, and artistic interventions.
On Monday, organizers Dana Wu (Friends of the Tulou) and Samantha Culp (New Territories Studio) will present an overview of the project, discuss its background and goals, and lead a conversation with HK-based Tulou participants and others who might like to join or learn more.

Triple Major is an international creative studio that previously brought Project White T-shirt to Beijing – now they have opened their own boutique in a Dongcheng hutong. The eponymous shop is “disguised as a traditional Chinese medicine clinic” but will carry “avant-garde designs from international talents as an antidote to mainstream fashion’s erosion of individuality.” The 2nd floor and rooftop will host special exhibitions and events, including one by experimental designers Ffixxed (via Australia and Shenzhen) on Oct 29.
See full coverage by Beijing Stylites here and more about their opening flea market during the October holiday. More photos by proprietor Richie Chen here and some street style snapshots for Space 1520 LA.
