Mind Landscapes Studio Zhu-Pei, Beijing
Exhibition, Aedes Architecture Forum, Berlin, Germany.
Zhu Pei is one of the leading architects in China providing sub antial solutions to urgent challenges and questions of on-going urbanisation within the country. The rapid rate of urban growth, as well as the commercial pressures of mass consumer society, require well-considered concepts that also satisfy the need for authentic architectural expression.
In the cacophony of urban collages and archite ural super-signs against the backdrop of the real megacity, Zhu Pei has set off in search of his own roots within traditional aesthetic concepts, successfully adapting them for implementation in his work. This exhibition presents five large cultural buildings by the architect that are currently under construction.
