The Yu Qingcheng Gallery takes its name after the famous clay sculpture artist from China. The artist’s main concept of “manifold” also reflects itself in the gallery’s structure. That is, the strict geometrical shape of the building gradually changes through the other end; its physical form goes from linear to non-linear.
Yu Qingcheng Gallery expresses ten kinds of change using almost every element of the structure from its bricks to texture.
This concept of change has ten aspects namely mechanics, differential, level, optics, measurement, mete-rage, physical, dimension, character, and philosophy. The mechanic change is the alteration from static to dynamic, and the differential one is the change of line from straight to curvy. The change of level is about the size of the blocks going from large to small.
One can also discern the color variation going from dark to light which is the optics change. Likewise, measurement alteration is the surface layer going thinner; mete-rage is the gap of bricks going narrower; physical one is the texture going smoother; character is the temperament going from rough to soft. There is also a change in the dimension which starts two-dimensional and ends three-dimensional. As for the philosophical one, it corresponds to the process from yin to yang.
