On September, 2009, Shenzhen's proposal, "Dafen Village-the Regeneration of an Urban Village in Shenzhen" was approved by the International Selection Committee of the World Expo and exhibited in the Urban Best Practice Area of the Shanghai World Expo in 2010.

Using the regeneration of a manufacturing-based urban village as a case to exhibit, it fully demonstrates the uniqueness of Shenzhen, an ambitious new city hoping to become the "Global Pioneer City". As a result, the exhibition took the theme of "Shenzhen: Frontier for China's Dreams",and intervened the urban reality with its contemporary, experimental and critical nature. Urban spirit was the keynote mentality of the exhibition.

With years of in-depth study, editing and design on relevant documents, we published a 3-volume series in the publication style of archive/documentary, which presented Shenzhen Case Pavilion and its context of formation in a more complete and objective way.

The exhibition was organized in the form of a documenta. We referred to related archives, editing materials and printed documents so as to reproduce the unique exhibition process with installations and images, and to represent the grandeur and profoundness of the publications.
