One of China's leading architects - Yung Ho Chang - created a specially designed installation, Poly & Chai, in the V&A's John Madejski Garden which was on display from June-September 2008.
Chang devised a set of free standing screens inspired by traditional Chinese garden design that were arranged around the space for visitors to walk through. The screens were made from green recyclable plastic paving blocks, commonly used in parking lots, driveways and construction sites all over China. With an extremely banal and utilitarian material Yung Ho Chang has created a sumptuous garden space.
