What was your first impression when you arrived in Beijing? This was the question posed to visitors during Beijing Design Week at an exhibition presented by Beijing Postcards historian Lars Ulrick Thom and photographer Jens Schott Knudsen. The pop-up community space was designed to celebrate the history of Beijing’s Dashilar Neighborhood through a series of walks, maps and photos.
“We wanted to tell the important, but often forgotten story of how Beijing’s Dashilar neighbourhood played a pivotal role as the melting pot of Beijing.” —Lars Ulrick Thom, Director and Founder of Beijing Postcards.
你到达北京后的第一印象是什么？在北京设计周《来到京城》的展览上，参展的历史学家Lars Ulrik Thom (Beijing Postcards)和摄影师Jens Schott Knudsen向到访者询问对北京的第一印象。这个为期两周的社区展览，透过一系列的胡同导赏、地图和照片来回顾北京大栅栏的历史。
“我们想说出一些重要却又经常被人遗忘的故事,这些故事告诉我们大栅栏的邻里过去扮演着北京大熔炉的关键角色。” –––北京明信片的总监及创始人Lars Ulrik Thom
