Completely filmed before 2008’s Beijing Olympics and edited right after its ending, China According to China presents a set of thoughts by five local architects on China’s current situation.

This special isn’t an effort to portrait a certain scene [the profiles of each character are quite diverse] but to establish four issues that every Chinese architect has to deal with in today’s practice [opening-up, speed, agriculture & education] all of which may set the parameters of future development for Chinese architecture.

Wang Shu [Amateur Architecture Studio]
