Book Presentation: The City Beyond Architecture

Sheng-Yuan Huang is one of a kind in the architecture world. Indeed, even though he advocates for freedom in the process and shapes of architecture, he contained his work within a county of Taiwan. Here, during a process long 25 years, he has been able to build an urban sequence of public spaces and facilities that spans across more than one kilometer of urban and rural land.

Exhibited at the Taiwan Pavilion at the La Biennale di Venezia 2018 and selected to exhibit in the categories Emerging Communities at the main exhibition of La Biennale do Venezia 2021, his work is relatively unpublished. The book ’The City Beyond Architecture’ written by Alessandro Martinelli and published by Listlab is the first publication that will present the work of Sheng Yuan Huang in extensive form and providing essential information about the context of development side by side with a series of interviews with protagonists of the architecture scene in Taiwan.

The first book launch will be held at the Shih Chien University in Taipei. It will feature an introduction by Listlab, that initiates a book series about emerging voices of design from the Far East, a short lecture by Alessandro Martinelli, author of the book, and a debate with Sheng-Yuan Huang and Chun-Hsiung Wang, chairman of architecture at Shih Chien University and curator of both the contributions of Sheng-Yuan Huang to the La Biennale do Venezia. The event is free of charge and accessible online, too, thanks to the digital platform Google Meet, organized by Listlab.

The presentation will be held at 20:00 UTC+8 (Taipei time) - 14:00 UTC+1 (Central European Time)
