Item description for Yung Ho Chang: Atelier Feichang Jianzhu--A Chinese Practice by Laurent Gutierrez, Valerie Portefaix, Lars Lerup, Ruan Xing, Hou Hanru & Yung Ho Chang...
Perhaps China's most internationally acclaimed architect, Yung Ho Chang is particularly concerned with architecture's role in expressing and reflecting the indigenous culture. He advocates the wide use of bamboo as a building material in Chinese urban design, as put forth in his Bamboo City, exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2000, but while he focuses attention on the changes taking place in Beijing, he is mindful of the globalizing context in which the city is developing. In the past decade, Chang and his Atelier FCJZ (fei chang jan zhu, or "unusual architecture"), which he founded in the early 1990s as Beijing's first private architectural firm, have created a wide range of intellectually provocative urban projects in China that continue to receive acclaim.
Edited by Gutierrez + Portefaix, Essays by Ruan Xing, Hou Hanru and Lars Lerup.

Chang and his firm Apr 11, 2005
Yung Ho Chang established his architectural firm " Fei Chang Jian Zhu" in early 1990s.His most extraordinary contribution to the development of mordern Chinese architecture is that he discover a new path which fits the situation in China perfectly. As an educator, Chang coordinates the Peking University Graduate School of Architecture and Enviromental Design, and brings some of the most advanced educational concepts to replace the old ones.
Chang's future will be bright, since I knew that he will be the next dean at MIT's Department of Architecture.I am expecting he will doing better at MIT, and contineously watching the development in China.
