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 beautiful form. But sometimes this form is fake or shallow. The design profession today should go to more deep form, which means its form should have an ecological base and have an ecological relationship. The buildings should be energy saving, the landscape should be sustainable.” – Kongjian Yu
