Siping Community resides in Yangpu District, Shanghai. After decades of development, it has become an established residential community. In the meantime, it is seeking for new approaches in community regeneration and transformation.


"OPEN YOUR SPACE” is a pilot project initiated by Siping Community of Yangpu District and Tongji University College of Design and Innovation (D&I). It is one of the collateral exhibitions of the 2015 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture. We invite both local and international designers, students, institutions, interested groups and individual to join us at Siping Community. The project is staged to develop critical and empathetic perspectives on observing pressing social issues and to propose practical and engaging design strategies with an aim to achieve a sustainable balance between the existing resources and new investments.

This is not ANOTHER conventional design competition.

We believe in the creativity inherent in all disciplines!



This is not ANOTHER parking lot for temporary expedients.

Good ideas must withstand the dual test of practice and time!



This is not ANOTHER case of self-serving entertainment for the privileged.

Everyone is entitled to the responsibilities and rights to change the living environment!
