Created in March 2016, psD, also known as the power station of Design, is a creative extension of the Power Station of Art (PSA) in Shanghai. Conceived as a workshop, the new space concatenates education, exhibition, products and leisure into an organic production chain – a space of experience, a space that is a synthesis of self-learning and autonomy.
The space of psD is modified from an old factory plant, and renowned Chinese architect Yung Ho Chang was responsible for its internal design. psD will utilize the idea of China’s traditional street-side shops, and connect internal and external spaces through a binocular-style layout and four transparent metal boxes to form proactive space interactions. It hopes to create a clear, flexible, changeable yet versatile space for art events and life experiences.
