Project description

The story of time in a bookstore grows upward in the middle of the city Memories in books are about the city and the self It is said that the depth of a city's culture is judged by how many bookstores it has. Bookstores and cities express and co-exist with each other in the witness of time and space. Walk into a city, remember a city, and fall in love with a city... People use bookstores as a warm carrier of collective memory to explore the past and future of the city. Huizhou Wild Island Cultural Life Community is famous for its accumulation of Dongpo Temple, the former site of Yuedong Distillery and the former site of East Lake Hotel. Ueno Book House is located here. It awakens the industrial civilization engraved in the depths of history with the scent of books. Old memories overlap with new stories, and the past and changes of the city, which have been left behind by the passing of time, are preserved, shaped and regenerated.
