It looks like another autumn has arrived in the city, where we’re not going beyond China’s fine borders – and before you know it winter will be in town. Luckily there’s lots going on to keep us distracted; celebrations, yet another ring road, and MORE. Here’s what’s been happening in China’s most chilled out city this fall…

Taikoo Li “Soundscape” Exhibition

On October 19, the launch of the themed “Soundscape” event took place at Sino-Ocean Taikoo Li. This event invited French multimedia experimental artist Penelope Guerineau to present the “Soundscape” immersive art installation. Pioneer musician Ma Haiping and music producer Zhong Ziqi specially created electronic music such as “Sunrise” and “The Beacon”, which bring a multi-sensory experience perfectly integrated with art installations.

The post-epidemic era has brought new challenges to the creation of physical space. As an active explorer in the creation of urban public space, Sino-Ocean Taikoo Li Chengdu once again tries to break the traditional boundaries of physical space and create a more three-dimensional multi-sensory scene to establish with consumers deeper spiritual resonance.

Visitors can experience the sound diffusion system at Taikoo Li’s central Man Plaza 漫广场 until November 8th, daily from 10am until 10:30pm.
