Mr. Zhu got his master degree of architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and bachelor degree in Architecture from Shenzhen University. He founded Scenic Architecture Office in Shanghai in 2004.
Scenic Architecture believes that the spirit of architecture exists in how people perceive the basics of nature and living. Architecture of 21st century shall not only respond to human’s needs, but also act as a positive media between human and environment. We use architecture to explore how space and time stimulate and absorb each other, and how to establish balanced and dynamic relevance among human, nature and society. All of these can only be realized by organizing matters like materiality, technology and form. This is what we define as “Architectural Design”. With persistent efforts on practice and thoughts, we are on the way to make architecture as a yearning life experience, and a carrier of both material and spirit.
The works of Scenic Architecture were widely published by international and local professional media, and were invited to various international architectural exhibitions including China Contemporary at NAI (Rotterdam, 2006), China Design Now at Victoria & Albert museum (London, 2008), Contemporary Chinese Architecture at Cité de l'architecture et du patrimoine (Paris, 2008), Architopia at CIVA (Brussels, 2008), Shenzhen Biennale(Shenzhen, 2007 & 2009), New Trends of Architecture in Europe and Asia-Pacific(Tokyo, Barcelona, Istanbul etc., 2008-2010), “Un-Natural” at BCA (Beijing, 2009), and 2010 Venice Architecture Biennale.
