Overview

KRIS YAO | ARTECH’s new monograph ‘SECTION’ assembles 27 of the firm’s projects in the dynamic Greater China region, dating back to 2012. It includes a wide range of architectural types, catering for the cultural, commercial, corporate, education, hospitality, and transportation sectors, in addition to a performing arts center and a spiritual space. The common theme is a desire to create places that allow people to interact with their environment, enhancing connections between nature and the man-made, with the appropriate use of technology for sustainable living comfort.

The projects are organized into three categories: modern architecture infused with the essence of Chinese culture, unique places with poetic expression, and the reshaping of the corporate spirit. The book includes numerous sections and details in order to convey the ideas behind the walls—allowing readers to understand the scale and spatial sequence of each project—alongside the buildings’ harmonious relationship with their environment and cultural context.

Each project exemplifies the simplicity and precision of modern architecture that pays respect to the uniqueness and sustainability of a site, while also demonstrating the influence that KRIS YAO | ARTECH has had in shaping modern Asia’s urban landscape.
