Beautified China

The Architectural Revolution

A minimalist look at the most iconic architecture of the last years

The past decade, internationally renowned architects such as Zaha Hadid, Ole Scheeren, and Herzog & de Meuron have given their creativity and expertise free rein in China, where the sky is literally the limit, from construction techniques and use of materials to design.

Unimaginable forms that seemingly defy the laws of gravity come to life in the form of gigantic skyscrapers.

Beautified China presents a splendid overview of these revolutionary designs through the lens of photographer and architect Kris Provoost.
