Chinese Architecture

Last updated by david at 2014/9/22

Rapid economic development and city expansion in contemporary China have brought numerous opportunities for architects both inside and outside China.

Whether they are architects form the Chinese mainland or famous international architects, their preoccupations are about trying to find appropriate design concepts, principles and methods in such a rapidly changing environment.

In the last five years, the overwhelming wave of globalization has swept every corner of the world and China has already started to catch this wave, especially with the construction of a series of projects for the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing.

At the same time, with the rapid development of the economy and the continuous improvement of living standards, exploring local methods and means of expression has become a preoccupation for more architects.

Across China, the call to retain local traditions -architects who attach importance to local requirements- while at the same time embracing cotemporary modernity is becoming more and more intense.

They are not imitating the so-called “global standard” blindly, but manage, with great effort and perception, to retain diversity and personality in their architecture for the ultimate benefit of the people they are building for.
