Since November 2020, we are taking a Virtual World Tour and “visiting” selected countries around the world to meet some of their most relevant architects. Now that we can not meet you and our speakers at a fully booked auditorium, we will bring the speakers directly to your homes and offices! 

On Wednesday, March 24th, 2021 live at 19:00 CST (Beijing time) / 12:00 CET (Berlin time) we will “visit” China and meet two of its most remarkable architects. If you can’t make it live, save the link and watch it later.

The two following architects will talk on our virtual stage about their personal experiences and important creative periods in their lives and, as always at “AnA“, none of their projects may be mentioned:

– Dong Gong, Vector Architects, Beijing, www.vectorarchitects.com
– Lyndon Neri, Neri&Hu Design and Research Office, Shanghai, www.neriandhu.com

This event is kindly supported by JUNG and Mosa.
