‘Template’ is made from wooden doors and windows from demolished Ming and Qing Dynasty houses (1368-1911). The internal part of each wall is shaped according to the volume of a hypothetical traditional Chinese temple.  The selected area, not the material temple itself, tells you that the real physical temple is not there, but constructed through the leftovers of the past. In 2007 the structure collapsed during a storm. Ai Wei Wei said: “It’s better than before, now the power of nature is in evidence, and art only becomes beautiful through this kind of emotion”.
