Based on the narrative space theory and Hejduk’s deconstruction theory, the project narrates 40 historical events that once took place in Yingping District, Siming District, Xiamen, and connects the whole site with node buildings.

After an in-depth study of John Hejduk’s masquerade theory, the project used it as a guiding theory to propose a narrative translation project for the Yingping area.

Yingping Area is the starting point of Xiamen’s urban social development, and it is also the traditional memory area of old Xiamen in the eyes of the people of the whole country. However, with the progress and ups and downs of The Times, the expansion of Yingping urban space and the adjustment of functional structure, as well as the continuous invasion of modern lifestyles, traditional culture is being eroded by modern civilization. The infinite expansion and spread of capital and commercial space not only causes the crowded and chaotic space environment of Yingping, but also swallows the social value of public space of Yingping, and the city is gradually losing its vitality.

The project lists the familiar memories of Yingping District from 1542 to 1963, and extracts its elements to make it a nodal building placed in the site, so as to activate the vitality of public space in Yingping District. It itself plays a neutral role in the public space. The project is neither intended to celebrate historical cultures nor to communicate them to the public, but rather to try to tell their stories in a neutral way.
