    HOLL'S LINKED HYBRID

    China's recent willinginess to be an architectural testing ground has left it with a fair share of question marks dotting urban horizons, but in Linked Hybrid the gamble may have paid off. The bold, high-end residential complex in Beijing, by Steven Holl Architects, offers a more pervasive and open sense of neighborhood than most other modern high-rise housing in the city. — Published 2010.0120

    ART IN BEIJING

    With Beijing hosting the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, the Chinese government has sought, like a typical Olympic host, to make a statement about the country's progress. In China's case, this has included some ambitious and high-profile architecture projects, such as Herzog & de Meuron's spectacular bird's-nest-like National Stadium. — Published 2008.0716

    NEW ARCHITECTS OF CHINA

    As China's share of the global limelight grows brighter, it's little surprise that architecture has become one of the country's greatest public relations tools. Signature buildings thrust up all over the place, brash new developments blanket the countryside, and developers' appetites for innovation are hitting extremes. China has always been very much about "face," and with both the Beijing 2008 Olympics and the Shanghai 2010 World Expo on the way, that face is getting a lot of attention. — Published 2007.0919

    POSTCARD FROM SHANGHAI

    Dear ArchitectureWeek,

    In the interior design of its own three-story office space in downtown Shanghai, China, completed in April 2006, MoHen Design International emphasizes decorative elements. The reception desk is a glass case lit from the inside, an island of light in a dark space. In the main office and work space, cubicles line two opposite walls. Two long faux-finished tables for collaborative work stretch lengthwise down the middle of the room, flanked by furry, bench-style seats. Task lighting drops from the ceiling. — Published 2007.0314
