Curating cities

In October, Swire Properties kicked off the "Please Be Seated" tour across its retail portfolio on the Chinese mainland. Conceived by British design firm Paul Cocksedge Studio, this large-scale art installation aims to respond to the busy nature of urban life, reinvigorating the way local communities interact with space, by inviting them to explore and engage physically with the artwork. 'Waves' of wood rise up to form arches for people to walk through, whilst curves below create spaces for them to sit and relax. Echoing Swire Properties' strong focus on sustainability, the piece is fabricated from 1,440 planks of sustainably sourced timber. Following its 'stay' at Sino-Ocean Taikoo Li Chengdu, the artwork will visit Taikoo Hui in Guangzhou, Taikoo Li Qiantan in Shanghai, and will come to rest at Taikoo Li Sanlitun in Beijing, where it will become a permanent installation, showcasing Swire Properties' commitment to creative placemaking in the community.
