Conceptual Architecture

by Shaoqiang Wang

In the modern world, conceptual architecture has only become possible due to modern man's increasing tendency towards individualisation. Concepts, in contrast to theories, do not demand absoluteness or intellectual consensus, but rather allow for a playful and singular approach to designing and building. The works featured in Conceptual Architecture possess sensual and atmospheric qualities that can be attributed to a delicate handling of materials and details. Unlike much conceptual architecture, most of the projects have been realised, a testament to new methods.
