Led by Founding Principal Ping Jiang, AIA, who established the Shanghai based practice in 2015, the firm strives to provide environmentally sensitive and innovative design solutions for architecture and urban environment. The practice is founded on the belief that architecture should concern itself with the environment, and is deeply committed to design excellence, innovation and sustainability. The firm has extensive experience in a wide range of building types, including large scale mixed-use developments, office/corporate, retail, hospitality, cultural/civic, institutional and residential uses.
The practice aims to address the ever-changing urban conditions in China and beyond, confronting the challenges of complex urban realities with an impressive body of work across typologies and scales, such as high-density urban development, urban regeneration, along with civic, cultural and institutional projects. Seeking to adopt a holistic approach to urbanism and architecture, the firm’s design work is rooted in deep understanding of the unique qualities of each project’s site, program, context and aspiration. The experience of space and place is central to our practice. Our design process engages a simultaneous exploration of conventional building tectonics and cutting edge digital technologies, integrating architecture, landscape, interior, product and art across the creative process.
