20 May: Lecture Zhu Xiaofeng | Scenic Architecture


On Monday 20 May, we will host another lecture in the series ‘The Next Decade’. Zhu Xiaofeng will be speaking on ‘Suture quality & density’.

Contemporary China has been experiencing an unprecedented age of construction. Along with great opportunities, the spatial quality of most of these constructions confronts problems and challenges. Scenic Architecture paid close attention to these challenges by a series of research-base studies and strategic proposals on new architectural typologies, and by a continuous experiment on the quality of “loose space” through real practice. In this lecture, Zhu Xiaofeng will share these both ways to suture between quality and density.

Zhu Xiaofeng is design principal of Scenic Architecture, an active architectural practice that he founded in Shanghai. He teaches at Tongji University School of Architecture and Urban Planning as a visiting professor. Mr. Zhu got his master degree of architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and his bachelor degree in Architecture from Shenzhen University.

The works of Scenic Architecture are widely published by international and local media. The office participated in various international exhibitions, including China Contemporary at NAI Rotterdam, China Design Now at the Victoria & Albert museum in London, New Trends of Architecture in Europe and Asia-Pacific in Tokyo and the 2010 Venice Architecture Biennale.
