Looking at China as a Creator, Not Manufacturer by Alice Rawsthorn

Posted by the editors on Monday, 11 July 2011

A round housing complex designed by the architects Urbanus in Guangzhou, China. The design is inspired by ancient toulou, the circular buildings that provided communal housing in China for centuries.

The ever-perceptive design observer and critic Alice Rawsthorn has written “Looking at China as a Creator, Not Manufacturer” in the Arts section of The New York Times, looking at the developing Chinese design scene and two exhibitions of Chinese and Western design and architecture, “daringdesign,” an exhibition running through 20 November 2011 at the Netherlands Architecture Institute in Rotterdam, and “China New Design,” which will be presented at La Triennale Design Museum in Milan through 11 September 2011.

See our other posts on articles by Alice Rawsthorn: Visually Stunning, Technologically Ingenious, Poetic, Subversive – The Lighting of Ron Gilad for FLOS by Alice Rawsthorn,  Quietly Excellent Design – The Annual Post-Salone Sigh from Alice Rawsthorn, Skull and Crossbones as Branding Tool,  A Taxonomy of Office Chairs – You’ll Never Look at Them the Same Way Again, and more, here.
