The theme of the 2009 Shenzhen & Hong Kong Bi-City Biennale of Architecture\Urbanism was "City Mobilization." So Standardarchitecture created Eggs of the City — a pair of mobile living pods designed with China’s enormous population of young migrant workers in mind. Made of fiberglass, the playful egg-shaped units stood on the plaza of Shenzhen’s civic center; one doubled as a bench with a small sleeping area inside, while the other served as a karaoke room. Both were purely experimental, but a third, more fully outfitted variation was later made of bamboo at Standard’s office, by a firm member who, as of press time, had lived there full-time for more than three months.
