[re-post] A belated follow-up on the past Shanghai SnowBall Seminar (as we are dealing on the background with some website issues). Thursday March 25 was the first of a two day series of presentations by Chinese and Finnish architects (program & timetable, participants & publication). SnowBall snapshots.
For some written background to the Shanghai SnowBall Seminar, check out the first write-out of the investigation of OK-DO in a SnowBall post called ‘Emerging Chinese architects at the Snowball Shanghai event’:
The new generation of Chinese architects is neither interested in contemporary Chinese architecture nor the western style,” says Zhang Ke, one of the three principals at standardarchitecture, a Beijing office engaged in the practices of urban planning, architecture, landscape and product design since 2001. “And we don’t want to sell Chinese style abroad, either.” In search of tomorrow’s architectural design agenda in China, OK Do met with four emerging local architects at the Architecture Snowball event in Shanghai to talk about their views on designing in and for the country undergoing rapid growth and massive change.
