Kongjian Yu in Conversation with Angela Crisostomo

MSAUD student Angela Crisostomo speaks with Kongjian Yu in advance of his Kenneth Frampton Endowed Lecture at the school on October 29, 2018. Dr. Yu is the founder and principal of Turenscape, a Beijing-based design firm conducting work in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture, city planning, urban design, and ecological infrastructure.

“Design means in our profession to create something with a beautiful form. But sometimes this form is fake or shallow. Design today should create deep form, which means the form should have an ecological base and relationship. Buildings should be energy saving, the landscape should be sustainable.” - Kongjian Yu
