Madeleine Kessler Architecture


One Billion Journeys

Whilst at Haptic Architects, Madeleine worked on an exhibition to showcase the wonderful photography of Chinese artist Wang Fu Chun, who has captured candid moments of his fellow passengers on trains in China over the course of 40 years. Titled One Billion Journeys, the exhibition will be shown six museums around the UK over a period of three years, including the National Railway Museum, York; The Locomotion, Shildon; and The Science Museum, London. The exhibition is designed as a series of modules which can be easily re-arranged in the different locations, to give the impression of travelling on a train. The exhibition immerses visitors in other people’s lives, as well as documenting a profound period of change in China’s history. The images are shown at different scales to allow the visitors to interact with the images in a variety ways.
