Contemporary China is experiencing a cultural transformation, making it a rich territory for creative exploration at the intersection of heritage and progress. Opportunities for multilayered, culturally coded built artifacts arise out of productive tensions between traditional techniques and typologies and new building technologies and rapid urbanization. Höweler + Yoon's recent architectural works include Sky Courts Exhibition Hall and LuxeLakes Hotel, both in Chengdu, and the Shanghai Expo Cultural Park Bridges competition.
The Asian Art Museum and California College of the Arts present a series of lectures by leading figures shaping architecture today. Through this collaboration, the series hosts a combination of distinguished architects from Asia as well as North American practitioners active in Asia to provide a common framework for deepening knowledge of and interest in contemporary Asian architecture.
