With the world growing ever closer through globalization and resources growing ever more in demand, the future of the port lies in efficient and sustainable living. As the land use efficiency of the ports increase, more space becomes available for multi-purpose programs, and port industries are transformed to relate to the human scale with complex functions.. Mobile Culture, Creative Community proposes that logistics, business, living and recreation along the shoreline become more closely inter-connected and interdependent, creating a new and robust port economy. To meet the demand of communication and integration between industries in the new port economy, a new “mobile industry” forms a globally productive network of culture and community, which allows for effective communication and creative cooperation.
As a prototype, we combine the cultural and creative industries in Dafen with a new port economy for Shenzhen and Hong Kong. Building on the model of art production in Dafen village as an anchor, Mobile Culture, Creative Community creates a large chain of industries which is diverse, integrated, complex, and influential. Mobile platforms float between markets independently. Creative Communities are assembled specific to the existing conditions and available resources at hand. Being attached to or detached from the land, the Mobile Culture, Creative Community group is continuously transferring and redistributing goods, culture, and knowledge. The Dafen prototype also inspires us, that as an open platform available to the public art becomes part of the community and is no longer restricted to those with artistic training, but becomes a livelihood for any person. Mobile Culture, Creative Community creates a point of exchange at which people from different countries or cultures, with diverse backgrounds, and varied professional skills, can think, talk, create, and work together for the production of culture.
