Shan-Zhen Photographic Exhibition

1.02.2016 –

Irish Design 2015 & Dublin Chinese New Year Festival

ID2015 is delighted to collaborate with Kildare Village and Dublin Chinese New Year Festival 2016 to host this special interactive exhibition by photographer Matthew Thompson, Areaman Productions, Urban Agency and AP+E Architects. It was originally commissioned by ID2015 as part of the 2015 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture in Shenzhen, China. 


Shan-Zhen explores the unlikely historical connection between Shenzhen and the town of Shannon on the west coast of Ireland. In 1980 the future General Secretary of the Communist Party of China and President of the People’s Republic of China, Jiang Zemin visited Shannon to Study the Free Economic Zone. Consequently the Shannon model was used as a template for the development of Shenzhen.
