The concept for the Vanke Pavilion incorporates three ideas drawn from Chinese culture related to food: the shi-tang, a traditional Chinese dining hall; the landscape, the fundamental element to life; and the dragon, which is metaphorically related to farming and sustenance.

Yesterday evening, while browsing through the endless list of downloaded-but-yet-to-be-listened-to podcasts, we have come across this rather dated (it was first broadcast in March 1999) but still relevant and enormously though-provoking episode of BBC Radio 4’s acclaimed series ‘In Our Time.‘
Focusing on the topic of ‘the rise in so-called spectacular architecture at the end of the 20th century,’ the episode sees the programme’s multi-award winning host Melvyn Bragg and his guests – the eminent American architect Daniel Libeskind and an architect and lecturer Richard Weston, discuss the social, cultural, demographical and financial aspects of the 20th-century contemporary architecture.
