Despite an era of great development and economic liberalization, China’s urban environment is impacted by increasing social inequality. The Social Imperative: Architecture and the City in China, edited by H. Koon Wee, explores this topic and will be used as a discussion guide. Participants engage in conversation with practitioners and scholars as they imagine new social paradigms and create opportunities that address social issues surrounding massive building projects in China.
Speakers: H. Koon Wee, HKU Cities in Asia, Asian Urban Lab, SKEW Collaborative Cliff Pearson, American Academy in China, USC, Architectural Record Travis Bunt, Columbia University, One Architecture Lee Ambrozy, NYU, Art Forum
