Zhang Ke of ZAO/standardarchitecture from Beijing is one of the most promising protagonists of a young group of Chinese architects and urban planners. His work seeks to combine the specific context and local culture with contemporary means. In addition to the upcoming exhibition „Contemplating Basics“ at Aedes and the accompanying ANCB symposium on sustainable tourism, ARCH+ features invites Zhang Ke to give an in-depth lecture on his work including the projects presented in the exhibition, as well as his more conceptual projects and installations.

In 2004, ARCH+ published an issue on the accelerated development in China called „Chinese High-speed Urbanism“. A decade later, we have the opportunity to discuss not only Zhang Ke’s architectural thinking but also the conditions of contemporary architecture production in China. Eduard Kögel, who has been contributing editor of the China issue, will join the discussion and enrich it with his critical knowledge on China.
