Homecoming in China

HKU/Shanghai Study Center, Dec. 3, 2013
Posted by Gestalten—12/2013

Homecoming comes home to China. This Tuesday, December 3, Hong Kong University’s Study Center in Shanghai is hosting the last event in their lecture series Down to Earth. As a closing celebration, the series will be completed with the book launch of Gestalten’s recent title Homecoming, an architecture book with a focus on the rapid urbanization in China and the youthful resistance.

Edited by Christiane Lange, John Lin and Joshua Bolchover, Homecoming presents work by an emerging generation of Chinese architects that uses unique design and working approaches to resist generic mass construction and foreign iconic building. In particular, these architects are offering resistance against the rapid urbanization that has dominated the Chinese landscape. By responding to a local Chinese context, they have raised the avant-garde of China’s architectural design practice in recent years.

Joshua Bolchover and John Lin are also introducing their new publication entitled Rural Urban Framework, presenting for the first time the results of their research as well as their built projects in the Chinese backlands. 

Please join us for the evening and enjoy a conversation with Joshua Bolchover and Christiane Lange in Shanghai. The launch starts at 7:30pm, followed by drinks to celebrate the book launch!
