弥异所 073: 泉州小西埕老墙
MiYiSuo 073: The Old Wall of Xiaoxicheng, Quanzhou, China
施鸿锚/ SHI Hongmao
The old wall peeled off due to lack of maintenance,
which gives it a unique sense of age.
The gap formed by corrosion complements the roof tiles of the traditional houses.
After being reinforced and transformed,
it is inlaid with a sentence that Bai Yansong said,
"Quanzhou, the city you must visit at least once in your life",
forming the city card that tourists must hit.
In addition to the sense of space formed by the old wall
and the traditional houses exposed after the gap,
the small platform opposite it also echoes with it:
when there is no activity,
the platform limits the sense of space field of the old wall,
and provides more comfortable queuing and photo environment for the tourists;
when there are open-air activities held on the platform,
the old wall becomes a vivid background.
The Old Wall of Xiaoxicheng is located in Kaiyuan Street, Quanzhou, Licheng District.
