Along the Rivers

Series: What’s Next?
Date: Monday 6 November 2017
Time: 18:30
Venue: Lecture Hall

Along The Rivers is a documentary and research project tracing the confluence of China’s contemporary infrastructure boom and the Yellow and Yangtze Rivers as resources in both building and culture. The rivers are often referred to as the cradle of Chinese culture and have since occupied a central role in the expansion of that culture as it is understood in a context of urban optimization and rising domestic mobility.


Emails, interviews, photography, film, bargaining, cars, trains and canal locks have formed the content and methodology with which we examine the dual contexts of the rivers and interrogate our own interests in articulating new avenues of talking about architecture in China.
