Introduction

24 / JAN / 2018

ON SITE pulls the curtain back, exposing the process of building, planning, and designing, and the many different people who interact throughout. Particularly as foreigners building in China for over ten years, our experience as architects has been enriched and influenced by what we see onsite. After all, a huge part of our ethos at AIM is that process is a crucial part of the purpose, and people are always at the heart of it.
ON SITE is a visual meditation on process, planning, and creativity.
