This event forms part of The Bartlett International Lecture Series Autumn 2021.
What is the Future of Chinese Architecture?
The editorial team for B-ASIA magazine host a live roundtable discussion regarding contemporary architecture in China, with the participation of acclaimed Chinese architects with differing design agendas.
From the hybrid style of historicism and socialist classicism of the ‘Ten Great Buildings’, to the new urban areas labelled as playgrounds for Western architects, this conversation will offer three distinct perspectives on design and will speculate on the future of Chinese architecture.
The event is curated and co-chaired by the Architecture BSc Programme Directors and B-ASIA, a student-led collaboration investigating the identity of being Asian through undeclared, unsuspected and untold stories of Asia’s built environment.
B-ASIA’s latest project is ‘The Stew’, a magazine issue packed with stories of The Bartlett’s own diverse community and exclusive guests. The digital magazine can be read online at Issuu.
