THE CHINESE UNIT
Urban Form for Future China
Fluxus Foundation will present the THE CHINESE UNIT – Urban Form for Future China as part of Fluxus As Architecture exhibition series.
This exhibition is the happy convergence of Fluxus Foundation’s interdisciplinary commitment, George Maciunas’ intellectual legacy of Fluxus Prefabricated Building System as a universal structure of standardization, modularization and mass-production, and more importantly, the contemporary issues and visions of China’s urbanization.
Knowing that challenges and complexities in the economic, political and cultural modernity of China lie well beyond any singular design or research alone, The Chinese Unit Exhibition intends to gather collective efforts on this topic, serving as an open source of well-qualified information, arguments and methodologies in response to China’s urbanization. We are inviting relevant and remarkable academic works to display, including works from China Magacities Lab in Columbia University, Common Frameworks program in Harvard University, The Projective Cities program in Architectural Association School of Architecture, research reports from McKinsey&Company and Arthur D. Little, Inc. and so on. The platform will thrive not only by brainstorming solution but also by raising the quality of debate.
Fluxus As Architecture exhibition series' curators are Harry Stendhal, Chairman of Fluxus Foundation, New York, and Fanyu Lin, Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design, Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation in Columbia University.
