From the architect. Following up a year of development, Penda has unveiled their installation for Beijing Design Week (BJDW) 2015 – Rising Canes, a structural system made entirely of bamboo and ropes. Meant to be a speculation system for larger developments, the installation is fully modular, ecological and easy to expand in every direction. Bamboo was chosen as the main construction material for its long traditional roots in China and fantastic structural capability, as well as part of a desire to fight its current obscurity as a construction material.

Dashilar: Housing In-between

23:00 - 21 September, 2015

Dashilar: Housing In-between is a collaborative forum and exhibition event organized by Studio X and Dashilar Platform for Beijing International Design Week 2015. Curated by Jeffrey Johnson (Studio X Beijing), Yijing Xu and Neill Mclean Gaddes (SANS, Dashilar Platform) with support from Columbia University GSAPP, Dashilar Platform and Beijing International Design Week.

‘Housing’ is a basic human necessity and has always been a critical subject of discussion around the world. With growing awareness of the gross inequalities created by neoliberal economies, significant attention has been placed recently on the housing conditions of those less privileged and marginalized.

Video: Steven Holl Discusses Beijing's Linked Hybrid, 7 Years After Completion

14:00 - 31 July, 2015

A community of 750 units interconnected on, below and above ground, Steven Holl Architects "Linked Hybrid" was an intentional shift away from the monolithic, monofuctional skyscraper. The entire complex was designed to be a "three-dimensional urban space" that encouraged chance encounters beyond the ground floor. 

In this video architect Steven Holl talks about the building's design and how it has performed, seven years after the building's completion.
