A Field of the Ordinary


Collaborator: Xinyi Zhou

LA+ EXOTIQUE 2023 Competition
HONORABLE MENTION




Set against a backdrop rich in exotic collections and colonial treasures, A Field of the Ordinary introduces a “field" populated with 260 trees that are native to the landscapes of France. This intentional juxtaposition aims to challenge the traditional perceptions associated with "Exoticism."







At the end of the central alley, visitors will find themselves entering an assembly of trees varying in height, and a continuous flow of red concrete planks that are alike wounds on the ground. In contrast to the prevailing symmetry and grandeur of the site's geometric layout, this “field” feels too Ordinary. It would be almost unnoticeable placed anywhere else, while here, we take it as an opportunity to curate unexpected engagement for visitors, drawing them into a unique experience.
