The Land Foundation, The Japan Foundation, and Center for Contemporary Art, CCA Kitakyushu present Art & Architecture Project in Chiang Mai. This is a collaborative project with artists and architects. The project starts with 4 days research in Chiang Mai, aiming to develop architectural ideas for a self-sustainable environment for the Land Foundation, and to explore the limits of conventional practice.

The research has three areas of focus. The structure of the local area is uncovered, through examination of how the landscape is constructed, not only in terms of city planning but also the relationship with the rural area. The transition of the city is considered through various hypotheses of the process of the transformation, through investigation of the deformation between the landscapes. Then the local food culture becomes a key element connecting the local characteristics that could be found in the structure of the city/landscape, with everyday life.

The open program of discussions/lectures forms part of the research, and will be a platform for exchange of ideas between the participants from various backgrounds.
