The building is realized on the wasteland of a ruined building site, in-between Shenzhen City Hall and an illegal workers camp. The design is inspired by insects. The bamboo construction methods are based on local knowledge from rural Guanxi, brought into the city by the migrating construction workers. The space is used during the SZHK Biennale for underground bands, poetry reading, discussions, karaoke and as a lounge for the illegal workers from the neighbouring camp. The building offers a shade, a stage and a fireplace. After the Biennale, the Bug Dome will act as an un-official social club for illegal workers from the Chinese countryside.
