Peter Chang to lecture on Upcycling and Recycling in Architecture at Design Shenzhen


Transformation and sustainability are intrinsic factors of MVRDV design ambitions and process. We believe that the most exciting places are ones that are living, constantly evolving by repurposing their pasts for the next generation of residents. 

Next Monday, on February 27, Peter Chang, director of MVRDV's Shanghai office, will give a lecture at Design Shenzhen.  The topic of this year’s event : Regenerative Design - Design for Wellbeing: Humanity, Sustainability, Technology. 

Associate director of MVRDV’s Shanghai office and Architect Peter Chang joined the firm in 2018 as a Senior Project Leader, coordinating the design and execution of MVRDV projects in Asia across a range of scales and types, from interiors to architecture to urban planning. Later on, he was promoted to Associate Director Asia in MVRDV's Shanghai office, where he helps lead MVRDV's Shanghai office and is responsible for MVRDV's market expansion and project execution in Asia. He has been involved in projects such as Vanke 3D City in Shenzhen, NIO House Chongqing (2019), and the Idea Factory in Shenzhen (2021).

Design Shenzhen builds upon Design Shanghai and Design Beijing, the leading global platform for design thought leadership, hosting presentations from world-renowned designers. It shines a light on the unique environment of Shenzhen, focusing on more forward-thinking design topics and the adoption of technologies in the design industry.

For this event, Peter will discuss the theme of [RE]densifying the future: Upcycling And Recycling in Architecture. To do so, he will share recent MVRDV’s projects that demonstrate our office’s endeavors on sustainable design and future-proofing cities. Shenzhen examples, the Women and Children Center and the Idea Factory in Nantou Ancient Town, will be put forward but also international ones such as Expo Pavillon 2.0 in Hannover, the Valley in Amsterdam or Tainan Spring in Taiwan.
