In 1999, WANG Hui co-founded URBANUS with partners LIU Xiaodu and MENG Yan. Based in Beijing and Shenzhen, URBANUS has become one of the most influential architectural practices in China.
More than a design practice, it is also a think tank formulating architectural strategies for the contemporary urbanism. URBANUS focuses on urban realities in China and seeks architectural solutions based on the researches of emerging urban problems.
Its projects have received numerous prominent awards, have been exhibited and published both nationally and internationally.
Within a wide spectrum of different building types that URBANUS has designed to formulate a set of general strategies towards the new urbanism, URBANUS is specialized in how to adapt old buildings to the contemporary context.
This lecture will focus on some of URBANUS’ renovation projects to illustrate that history can be re-coded to energize today’s urban life.
