Beauty and the East

New Chinese Architecture

A new design expression is being formed in China as architects look internally for visionary design instead of toward the West.

The transformation of China in the past three decades has been nothing short of spectacular.
Now a cultural and economic player on the world stage, its rise has also given air to a new generation of architects and interior designers.



China previously looked to the West for architectural references, today they are moulding a new design expression which fuses centuries of local tradition with idealistic design.

House of the Dragon presents the homegrown talent shaping this new aesthetic that is bound by the surrounding environment.



Adopting new methods and techniques, they are pushing design possibilities and influencing the watching world.

From cultural institutions to cityscapes, explore the tantalizing world of Chinese architecture and get a window into the world of tomorrow.
