Interactive Online Theatre

Learn more below


The project China Builders creates an interactive online theatre that invites the audience to explore and experience the life journeys of the early-20th century architects in China. Living in the times of dramatic cultural interactions and transformations, they are the forefathers of modern architecture in China. Some of them were architects from the West, bringing modern design practices to China and reshaping the urban landscape of Chinese cities; some of them were the first-generation Chinese architects educated in the West, initiating the study of Chinese architectural history and founding the discipline of architecture in China. This project turned the extraordinary careers of these individual architects into multimedia online experiences, allowing contemporary audiences to re-examine and re-think the establishment of the history, education, and practice of architecture in modern China.
