Invited by Architects, not Architecture (AnA), Li Hu, founding partner of OPEN, will be joining the China Edition of their Virtual World Tour, together with Yung Ho Chang, founder of Atelier FCJZ. Hosted by Fermín Tribaldos, the talk will begin from 19:00 CST on Thursday, May 12th.
OPEN reveals the design for the Shanfeng Academy project which topped out at the end of April. Situated in a new district of Suzhou city, the building will serve as the campus-centre for a new K-12 international school and will also act as a cultural hub for the local community.
OPEN’s new book, Reinventing Cultural Architecture: A Radical Vision by OPEN published by Rizzoli is available now.
Drawing on a series of conversations with OPEN’s founding partners Li Hu and Huang Wenjing, and site visits to six recent groundbreaking projects, architecture writer Catherine Shaw describes how OPEN is reinventing and responding to China’s complex and fast-changing cultural landscape with projects that mark a new era for contemporary Chinese cultural architecture.
