Curated by the Dean Marilyn Jordan Taylor, Professor Ali Rahim and Associate Professor Stefan Al, Duration higlights the changes in societal influences and the development of Chinese architecture. The exhibition--where past, present, and future come together--will allow viewers the opportunity to critically engage with the tensions that lie beneath architecture practice in China.

We look forward to seeing you in Beijing!
