Switzer­land: Sino-Swiss Ar­chi­tec­ture Di­a­logue in­au­gu­rated

Global Times – Metro Beijing - - EMBASSY -

The in­au­gu­ral Sino-Swiss Ar­chi­tec­ture Di­a­logue, with a fo­cus on sus­tain­able ar­chi­tec­ture, was suc­cess­fully held in Bei­jing on Jan­uary 22. Or­ga­nized by the Em­bassy of Switzer­land in China, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Ts­inghua Univer­sity Art Mu­seum (TAM), the di­a­logue aimed to of­fer a first-class plat­form for young Swiss and Chi­nese tal­ents and ac­com­plished masters to meet and ex­change around a topic that com­bines sci­ence, econ­omy and art.

The di­a­logue was held on the side­line of the ex­hi­bi­tion The Realm of Ide­al­ism: Mario Botta Ar­chi­tec­ture and De­sign 1960-2017 at the TAM. Mario Botta, a world-renowned Swiss ar­chi­tect who also de­signed the sig­nif­i­cant TAM, at­tended the di­a­logue and gave key­note speeches along with ex­perts in­clud­ing Li Xiaodong, a pro­fes­sor at Ts­inghua Univer­sity.

“Thanks to our coun­try’s pro­found and rich ar­chi­tec­tural cul­ture and her­itage, Switzer­land has earned a rep­u­ta­tion as an open-air mu­seum. On top of that, con­tem­po­rary ar­chi­tec­ture in Switzer­land, lo­cated ei­ther in the moun­tains or cities, is cel­e­brated around the world, par­tic­u­larly for its high-tech na­ture, cre­ativ­ity, in­cor­po­ra­tion of sus­tain­abil­ity and har­mony with na­ture,” Swiss Am­bas­sador to China Jean-Jac­ques de Dardel said in his speech.
