OPEN has won the "Architect of the Year" in Dezeen Awards China 2023.
Judges comments: “OPEN Architecture has consistently produced architecture that is radical and poetic but also functional. Its daring work strikes a rare balance between the man-made and the natural, with often spectacular results.”
Dezeen Awards China is a new regional edition of Dezeen Awards to celebrate the best architecture, interiors and design projects from studios based in China.
