本次展览源于2019年3月出版的新书《New Chinese Architecture:20 Women Building The Future》, 出版物及展览关注的是一个建造着未来的群体——中国的女性建筑师,旨在展示她们真实的生活、多元的成就和志向。她们的设计实践包含了丰富的建筑类型,从小尺度到巨构,从住宅到商业,从都市到乡村建设。

中国这个曾经的农业经济大国,正在以前所未有的速度进行着城市化,身处此地的建筑师们也在积极参与城市建设,并试图理解这个大国瞬息万变的本质,尝试回应那些影响着建筑设计和城市实践的社会变化与政策调整。

这不是一个关于性别认同的故事,而是一个关于建筑的故事。这些个体都是在中国舞台上做出重大影响的建筑师们,她们只是恰好身为女性。她们大多是冉冉升起的新力量,也有一些是更为成熟的建筑师。这些建筑师和她们的贡献,展示出历史的连续性,映射出一个充满希望的未来。

我们希望这本书和此次的展览将在某种程度上可以反映出当代中国惊人的创造力。


This exhibition is derived from the book “New Chinese Architecture: Twenty Women Building the Future” published in March 2019.

The book and this exhibition are a celebration of the lives, achievements, and ambitions of a variety of female architects living and working in China today. Their practices demonstrate the variety of styles and opportunities available to them; from small-scale to mega-scale, residential and commercial, urban or rural developments.

Architects in China are keenly engaged in trying to understand the changing nature of this vast country as it has metamorphosed from a predominantly rural economy into an urbanized nation faster than any other country in history. Chinese architects are responding to real social and political changes, changes that are impacting on the way architecture and urban design is practiced.

The architects featured in this exhibition are those who have made a significant impact on the national scene: several are emerging talents in the architectural firmament, but we have also included one or two more established architects to indicate some of the continuity as well as the changes that have affected this country in the recent past.

In the exhibition, we examine the life and work of the founders, directors or owners of their practices. These are architects delivering important national and local construction projects. They just happen to be female. This is not a story about gender identity, but of architecture. This is not a celebration of their femininity, but of their talent.

We hope that the book and the collection of projects on display will go some way to highlight the incredible innovation and skill currently available in China. ”
