How can architecture celebrate the diverse traditions, surroundings, and ongoing transformation of a region as lively and diverse as the Asia Pacific?
Join associate director Kyo Suk Lee on June 9 for an online presentation as part of the Architecture Symposium, the headline event of the Asia Pacific Architecture Festival. Kyo will answer this question by sharing insights on MVRDV's processes and work in the Asian Pacific region. To do so, he will showcase projects such as Sun Rock in Taiwan, Seoullo 7017 in South Korea, or Tianjin Binhai Library in China to illustrate the diverse ways MVRDV puts its vision into practice in the region.
The Asia Pacific Architecture Festival is organised by Architecture Media and the State Library of Queensland, taking place during the entire month of June. This year, the festival will be held in Brisbane, Australia and will welcome speakers from the Asia Pacific region to share knowledge and experience on “Culture, Sustainability, Economy – Why Design Matters.”
