Public Lecture on "Architectural Design – A Chinese Reality Through Project Practice" by Marlène Leroux

Marlène Leroux
Architect ETH, founder partner of Archiplein Office, PhD candidate at EDAR/ETH/EPFL

Synopsis of the lecture
Archiplein Office daily practice considers the project not only as producing practice but
also as knowledge creator. Each project, from a tea house in a sacred Taoist mountain
to a new city master plan, always interacts with local specificity to create a new context.
Through the prism of their practice Archiplein proposes a certain way of understanding
of the Chinese reality.
