slothwork architects designed this exhibition booth in shenzhen, china for juanzong books who are specialized in selling architecture books. in addition to exhibiting books, design furniture is also displayed there. the designers’ main concept is inspired by the construction phase of buildings before they are completed.

for this reason, the materials that they selected for the exhibition hall are commonly found on construction sites. light steel keel, woodworking boards, concrete block bricks, safety nets, and explosion-proof lights don’t normally see the light of day in design, but slothwork architects decided to make them become the final finish surface of this booth.

the shelf design resembles a book flipping outward while bookshelves are made of light steel keel and woodworking board. concrete blocks serve as chair supports for visitors to sit and relax while checking a book. slothwork architects wanted to keep the booth in the construction site phase, to give pleasure to the architects and construction workers who will visit the exhibition.
