Studio Pei Zhu is a young practice of under 20 employees based in Beijing. According their philosophy, the challenge of design is to provide practical solutions while reflecting a strong and innovative conceptual thinking and a critical outlook. The framework for this investigation and the experimental nature of our work is formed by the context in which it takes place- Urban China. The recent rapid development of the country has created new urban environments that can certainly be described as modern but lack the vitality and soul of older districts. One of Mr. Pei main concerns in design is to reconnect modern urban china to its roots, reinterpreting the vernacular in a contemporary context to create architectural devices capable of energizing urban activities. In this way Mr. Pei hope to contribute to a regional variance of contemporary architecture appropriate to its local context. *** Local Caption *** Zhu Pei architect in his Studio.
