Des jeunes architectes bâlois participent à la construction d’un parc municipal en Chine. Une petite parabole universelle sur la société moderne d’émergence.

Architects from Europe, America and China are invited to a Chinese provincial town. Within several months, they are to construct a park in Jinhua, intended to form the centre of a new district of that town. Where green fields now flourish and farmers plough the land, investors will soon flock, followed by new inhabitants and political reforms but the project ends up being drawn out over years. The euphoria of the early stages runs up against a reality in which torn-open earth and the ambitious hopes of politicians, workers and locals are the only manifest features. The film documents the changes leading to the Jinhua Architecture Park - from the laying of the foundation stone to its final opening. In giving all participants in this process an opportunity to comment, one central question proved to be a common concern: What is there for individuals to contribute, when the world around them is changing at such a rapid pace ?
