Architecture as a discipline is deeply rooted in the land and its people, two fundamentally intrinsic values that give architecture its true meaning. The lecture will discuss the relationship between culture, tradition, history, architecture and design in the post pandemic era through speaker Mr Liu’s own experience.

Mr Liu will introduce his award winning projects such as XY Yunhouse Hotel in Guangxi, Shanghai Minsheng Wharf Riverfront Open Space Renovation, Yangjing Harbor and Hangzhou Grand Canal Waterfront Public Space and the recently opened Caoyang Centennial Park.
