Brisk and Soar

Chengxu Tian

Part of the collection ‘Brisk and Soar’, 2013.

Western traditional building roofs are plane or convex while ancient Chinese building roofs are concave with the eaves curling up, which makes the overall eave form a curve and gives the heavy roof a sense of lightness visually. I used this kind of tradional Chinese roof’s features to create a series of shoes with a sense of lightness and agility visually.
