Lying behind this unassuming wall is a testament to the power of dedication to an idea and a process. A continuous process of caretaking and slow development. Across 7 years, 2 different clients and 4 development phases, Atelier Liu Yuyang has been working on a resort development.

Exhibition: Vicissitude of Vision: Inaugural Sino-Europe Invitational Architectural Exhibition 2020-2021 (Shanghai)
Co-organized by the Sino-Europe Architectural Media Center (SEAMC) and Sino-Germany Sustainable Urbanism and Architecture Association, the Inaugural Sino-Europe Invitational Architectural Exhibition 2020-2021 opened at the Roca Gallery in Shanghai on October 31, 2020, and will be free to the general public starting from November 1 to November 30 by reservation. The organizers plan to bring the exhibition to the Le Corbusier Gallery at the Weissenhof Estate in Stuttgart, Germany in 2021.
Curated by renowned Shanghai-based architect-curator-urbanist Mr. Yuyang Liu, the goal of the Exhibition – in light of the global pandemic, with geopolitical, economic, and climate uncertainty – is to bring together 16 Chinese studios and 8 European studios to share their visions and works, and to establish common grounds by fostering mutual dialogues.
Ecomobility and Revitalization of Huangpu Waterfront in Shanghai, China
REQUALIFICATION OF THE EAST WATERFRONT
L’industria delle costruzioni NO.473 9/2020
Continuing north, the Minsheng Wharf Waterfront, designed by Atelier Liu Yuyang Architects, is the most recent project for the revitalisation of the eastern edge. Once again, a bridge provides access to a linear park crossed by a suspended bicycle-pedestrian path. The design and articulated section of the site reveal a sophisticated interaction between topography and infrastructure: green slopes, paths, terraces and plazas, where the design of the new, by transforming existing industrial structures, pursues the continuity of spaces, landscapes and circulation.

Dissolved Space with the Intense Tectonics
Review XY Yunhouse Pavilion and Pool, Yangshuo in Guangxi Province
Time + Architecture 4/2020
ABSTRACT: Through analyzing the spatial, structural, constructional, and tectonic characteristics of XY Yunhouse Pavilion and Pool, this article reveals the tension between the honest expression of constructional logic and the visual illusion of the vanishing of structural elements. It tries to formulate the inherent characteristics of dissolved space with the intense tectonics in this pavilion and to re-consider the construction process itself critically.

Research of the Industrial Waterfront Transformation along Shanghai Huangpu Riverside from the Perspective of Production of Space
Landscape Architecture 07/2020
Abstract: Focusing on such issues as post-industrial aesthetics, ecological restoration and industrial transformation and other issues, existing researches on industrial waterfront transformation have failed to reveal the relationship and trend between physical space renewal and urban daily life reconstruction in the process of waterfront transformation from de-industrialization to publicization. This paper, based on the production of space theory of Lefebvre, discusses the value orientation of industrial heritage selection and interpretation, and the design strategy of the boundary of the urban open spaces, through participating in design practice projects, collecting and analyzing related planning and design schemes, criteria and reports of informal planning means and formal planning mechanism in the four key driving events of Huangpu waterfront transformation since 2002. It summarizes that the transformation of industrial waterfront of Huangpu River can be regarded as the practice of landscape urbanism, and expresses the interactive influence from top to bottom and from bottom to top. The research concludes that the non-hierarchical design orientation to the transformation of industrial heritage, is an important factor to promote the diversified daily life of everydayness in urban waterfront.

From Unglazed Fragments to Glazed Fragments: Shenyao Art Center
Architecture Technique 04/2020
The bookseries Architectural Design and History intends to explore the relationships between architectural design and the contemporary city, with a particular focus on the contexts where urban transformations relate to the preservation and promotion of historical heritage. By intersecting various theories, techniques and practices, the contributions aim at unfolding the complex identity of the architectural culture, fostering connections and exchanges among different disciplines, and enhancing a strategical and evolutionary conception of architectural heritage.

Building small guesthouses and hotels is an mportant task for China’s new generation f architects. Many of these buildings are characterised by unconventional designs and a sensitive use of materials. Their architecture often makes references to the local contextand cultural tradition. This book presents 20 exceptional guesthouses and hotels that have opened in China in recent years. A good number of them have been built in the countryside in an effort to improve living conditions there by encouraging sensitive tourism and to slow the rate of rural flight. The book reveals what distinguishes these places for an overnight stay.
对上海民生码头水岸改造及贯通项目的3 个子项目——三线链接水岸改造及贯通、洋泾港桥、民生轮渡站的设计策略进行了系统梳理。基于城市设计的整体性和延续性，民生码头水岸改造及贯通作为景观基础设施激活水岸断点与强化游憩体验，重启了城市环境中需要保持的平衡及感性，使其成为一个日常维度服务人民的城市焦点滨水空间。 文：刘宇扬，马蒂奥·莫斯卡泰利（Matteo Moscatelli）

不论是工业还是手工业，人类的制造活动总离不开工具。工具的演变史亦常作为人类进化史的切入角度，几次工具的革新都成为了人类进化历程中的拐点。 从考古的角度来看，旧石器时代中出现了两种最基本的工具类型：用以劈凿事物的石刀，用以穿刺事物的骨刺。它们不仅是打猎、切割的工具，也是后来人工取火的工具：“钻燧取火”与“钻木取火”的两个典故可为印证，其中“木钻”正是穿刺工具的类型变体。人工取火的能力催生了一些新的技术：比如熔炉技术、铸造技术等等，此时的工具也出现了新的类型变体与新的类型组合：劈凿工具细化出用以切割的锯子和刀子，穿刺工具细化出用以穿钉的钉子，两种基本类型的组合出现了用以斧凿的锤子。这三类工具和他们产生的建筑学意义，对我们接下来要谈论的轻质木框架体系至关重要。 文：张峰
The countryside is now a testing ground for contemporary art and culture. The avant garde and the vernacular, and the creative and the traditional, meet and result in new sparks. It is not only an expression of culture and a reflection of globalization, but also a revitalization of history and village with artistic and cultural approaches. With memories, cultural events, and the combination of both the old and the new, architects are committed to rural reconstruction not only with architecture’s material content and its cultural meanings.
Under the sustainable concept of reuse and digestion, the park was revitalized through an innovative design approach. The park re-utilized a large amount of existing earthwork to form new topography, and waste materials were packed into galvanized metal gabions and piled up as landscape installations. The design team decided to restore a good resting space and community park for the neighborhood.
At Beijing Cidi Memo iTown, an old factory zone, owned collectively by villagers and constructed with rudimentary techniques, has been renovated and transformed, leapfrogging the industrial mode of production which emphasizes efficiency, order, and standardization, and marching into the post-industrial era which embraces ideas, individuality, multiplicity, and customization.

In China’s rapid urbanization over the past few decades, the disposal of construction waste is a problem that is not very well received by the construction industry. The architects are busy building new houses, but they are helpless about the environmental pollution caused by massive construction. In the construction waste, 98% of the waste is piled up in the open air or simply filled in. And also, the architects’ design strategy against environmental problems, should not be limited to the building technology application. “Architecture” must be redefined as the core values of ecological infrastructure through a wider range of studies with site, community, and urban. And it should arouse all stakeholders the fear of the natural environment to leave the pure land for sustainable development.
以交通网络为核心的现代城市，加速了城市空间的碎片化，散落着不同类型的“闲置土地”、“闲置空间”。城市产业结构的转型，也常使许多历史空间或工业厂房，因不符时代需求与经济效益而废弃荒芜。旧建筑的拆除与否、保留时的修复与修复后的处理，是面对闲置空间时不可回避的问题。本文通过采访建筑师刘宇扬，以今年来改造设计的北京西店文创记忆小镇、上海滨江爱特公园两个项目为讨论点，试图从城市层面探讨解决“闲置土地”、“闲置空间”的运作机制。 采访：陈晨+袁菁 编辑：陈晨
The graffiti wall meandered towards to afar, while jagged houses stood on the other side; The new rural construction plan was hanging on the wall, while people gathered before the old murals, smoking the poor cigarettes; They were imitating the rumbling sound of the train, however, they never see the real one… Illustrated in the movie Platform, this is a part of folk memory towards that period, as well as a description of 1980s from close to open, which symbolized the transformation of China in 1980s, and today the country is ushering in a new transformation.
This essay abridges and reviews four of the author’s previous publications on urbanism and architecture of Hong Kong.
