DAY 2 Of Design China Beijing 2020
Design China Beijing’s theme this year is “Design Thrives to Revive the World” and continues to focus on sustainable design. The challenges the design community faces after the pandemic go far beyond creating a chair, a carpet or an interior decoration item. The show will seek to redefine the connection between design and sustainability, for the sake of our own health but also for the planet. Good design will remain a testament to this everchanging time we live in and will determine the outcome of business and restructure how we work.

RIBA Design Sprint
The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) will be participating at Design China Beijing for the first time. On 24 September, RIBA will host a design sprint titled “Modern City Garden for a New World”, a one-day design challenge during which participants will be encouraged to re-interpret traditional Beijing architecture typologies such as the hutong and siheyuan (traditional courtyard residences) and incorporate new design approaches and technologies. A panel of judges will conduct a live design review, choose a winning proposal at the end of the design sprint.
Earlier this year, RIBA started the “Hello China” initiative to further engage with the architecture and design community in China and the Pan-Asia area. At Design China Beijing, RIBA will host a panel discussion on social context and cultural heritage of Chinese contemporary architecture.
