Swiss Architecture Month Launched in Hebei Province to Focus on ‘Sustainability’ and ‘Art’

by swisschambei in Culture & Society

A cultural forum on Swiss architecture and art kicked off at Aranya, a trendy artsy tourism-oriented community space in Qinhuangdao, North China’s Hebei Province, as the first chapter in space’s Swiss architecture month that is set to run until mid-August. Collaboratively organized by the Embassy of Switzerland in China and Juanzong Books, the forum invited four ingenious Chinese architects – able to play to their oriental cultural tastes through Western approaches – to share their projects that reflect on the topic of “sustainability,” a pivotal issue in architecture. Adopting rather abstract themes such as “sensitive mountains” and “passive architecture,” the forum discussion focused on how buildings are designed to fit into the mountainous geography commonly seen in both China and Switzerland. Three Chinese architects Liu Kenan, Zhuang Ziyu and Yu Dao engaged the audiences by deductively showing the thought processes behind their projects to allow them to understand how they balanced idealistic vision and well-calculated functionality in their designs.
