This research will take place in her immediate territory - the Heizima hutong neighbourhood - and investigate their multiple domesticities. Not only as a documentation of a day-to-day changing territory, she will also engage her practice to propose a domestic gesture. The displacement – from a home to a public space - questions a monumental practice of architecture, and raises the value of the actual common places within the imperfections of the city.

Referring to the words of Jean-François Chevrier, the project intends to document a territorial intimacy : "Territorial intimacy is a local, exacerbated form of the experience of spatial continuity: contiguity, which defines local continuity, is redoubled by an effect of envelopment. It is manifested in behavior, attitudes, or, more generally, in a way that is both resonant and diffuse, in an experience of being part of the environment."
