Interweaving Architecture With Traditional Values

The Beijing-based Studio Zhu Pei already presented its architectural approach with great success in an exhibition at Aedes in 2017, and the breath-taking pictures of the meanwhile completed Imperial Kiln Museum in Jingdezhen have been presented in the international media.


Following the subsequent participation in the MoMA exhibition Reuse, Renew, Recycle in New York and in a large solo show in Wuhan, Poetic Imaginations at Aedes now stages a further chapter on Zhu Pei’s handling of the ‘collective historical experience’, topography, function and contemporary context of a location.

The exhibition presents six representative cultural buildings that, despite their different functions and surroundings, are related to one another by characteristic structures, materials and architectural forms. Based on impressively crafted architectural models, sketches, documentary films and publications, the process of creating these examples is presented in greater depth.

These projects by the Studio Zhu Pei are situated in a variety of natural surroundings and have a rich cultural background. Despite their different locations, they nonetheless bring together a characteristic structure and the use of particular materials, architectural forms and spatial configurations.
