    Pritzker Prize–winning architect Wang Shu of Amateur Architecture Studio presents a talk about the firm’s work and its sources of inspiration, including Chinese landscape painting and traditional buildings. Amateur Architecture Studio is at the forefront of contemporary Chinese architecture and the practice is rooted in the culture and natural resources of the communities where it works. This approach is reflected in projects such as the Ningbo History Museum, the campus of the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou and, most recently, the Fuyang Cultural Complex.  

    Wang Shu and his wife, Lu Wenyu, established Amateur Architecture Studio in Hangzhou, China, in 1997. Wang received the Gold Medal of Architecture from the Académie d’Architecture of France in 2011 and the Pritzker Architecture Prize in 2012 for the firm’s work.
