Architectural Journal, 653 issue, Work Report: Zijing International Conference Camp
The April issue of the Architectural Journal featured an in-depth report on the Zijing International Conference Camp. In the article, Zhu Pei shared his thoughts on the creation of the Zijing International Conference Camp. Inspired by the relationship between the local ancient villages and nature, the concept of settlement is adopted to transform the super-scale building of the "conference center" that integrates all functions into "conference and camp" buildings with scattered functions, making it be dissolved in the mountains.
Zhu Pei also described the design process of the Zijing International Conference Camp in detail. He said, " This group of buildings hidden in the mountains should inherit the traditional wisdom of the local, be eclectic like a sponge, flexibly and strategically absorb natural air, light, and accommodate human activities to create a natural, open, porous and flowing form of “conference and camp” buildings.”
