Li Xiaodong’s architecture combines his explorations of ideas with rational thinking based on inquiries into the concept of space, in the Chinese context. His works are influenced by both their cultural and climatic context and seek to capture the essence of their locations. Li’s designs achieve tranquility and harmony in terms of space, light and structured order.
