Hotels and Clubs

By Sun Jianhua, Catherine Chang

hotels-and-clubsHotels and Clubs selects twenty-three hotel and club projects, most of which are iconic works by the most influential Chinese architects. These masterpieces include Xun by ZHU Xiaodi, chief architect of Beijing Institute of Architectural Design (BIAD), who receives Chinese government allowances; Hongluo Clubhouse by MA Yansong, founder of MAD Architects, who earned his master’s degree in architecture from Yale University, received the Samuel J. Fogelson Award, and has been teaching at the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA); Placid Rivers Club by Yung Ho Chang from Atelier FCJZ, professor at Peking University, who is the first Chinese dean of the architecture faculty at MIT;and representative works by other Chinese pioneer architects. The architects abandon their enthusiams for mass construction and turn to the essence of architecture itself, allowing us to see more original and experimental elements in these projects, and thus the vigor in contemporary hotel and club design in China.
