Design Trust Feature Grant “Breaching Sanctum” is an exhibition of existing and newly commissioned art and design works alongside research materials, public programmes, and a publication in the form of a “reader”. The project delves into the work of a generation of Chinese female artists, designers, and architects born in the 1980s—on the cusp of the 1990s—and the influence of that era alongside current developments, innovations, and pressures connected to urbanism, sustainability, and the built environment, on their work.
