On the heels of the Chinese New Year, the Center for Architecture marks the Year of the Rat with two new exhibitions devoted to contemporary Chinese architecture. “Building China: Five Projects, Five Stories” and “Co-Evolution” will bow together tomorrow, February 26 at the center, located at 536 LaGuardia Place in New York. An opening party will be held from 6pm-8pm.
“Building China: Five Projects, Five Stories,” running through May 31, highlights five recently completed projects from emerging Chinese artists. The goal of the exhibition is to use each work’s complexities to illustrate the modern realities of architecture in the rapidly-developing nation. Projects include the Dafen Art Museum in Shenzhen and the Cultural Revolution Timepiece Museum in Sichuan, both completed last year.
