From Zaha’s masterpiece Beijing Daxing Airport

To a very artistic “Toilet of the Mountain”

this year’s Architizer A+ award

recognizes a more aesthetic and warm Chinese experience.

Architizer, the world’s leading architecture website, has announced the winners of the Architizer A+ Awards.

As one of the world’s largest awards, Architize is not only involved in the selection process, but also the Wall Street Journal, Phaidon, WSI and other well-known media.

This year, the organizer received more than 5,000 entries from more than 100 countries and more than 400,000 people participated in the selection process, but less than 10% of the entries were shortlisted. The competition was fierce.

In the end, China won 29 awards (17 from the professional jury and 12 from the public jury).

Among them, we have a masterpiece like Zaha’s Beijing Daxing Airport, a sophisticated café like %Arabica coffee in Shanghai, and even a “Toilet of the Mountain” that is very artistic.

In a time of global epidemics, natural disasters and political turmoil, these architectural works are telling us.

“Beauty Is Never Limited To A Vision, But Practicality, Humanistic Concern And Cultural Inheritance, Which Are Closely Connected With Life, Will Lead Us To A Better Future.


Beijing Daxing Airport

In May last year, Daxing Airport made headlines in foreign media when it was unveiled, and was ranked as one of the “Seven Wonders of the New World” by the Guardian and other media in the UK.

The airport, which is said to have the world’s largest single terminal, is located on the north bank of the Yongding River and is the legacy of Pulitzer Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid.

The airport has the appearance of a phoenix on fire, with 82 gates scattered along the wings, and passengers can walk to their gates in less than 8 minutes.

The interior of Daxing Airport, designed by Zaha’s team of colleagues, is almost omnipresent in Zaha’s signature “streamline” curvature.

The massive roof is constructed using a spatial grid, in which rigid steel is woven into a graceful, free-form scalloped surface.

From the roof down to the lower levels, the glass in the openings resembles a blue, psychedelic planet.

The railway from Beijing Daxing Airport to Xiongan is expected to open by the end of 2020, when passengers from Tianjin and Tangshan are expected to take the high-speed train directly to the Daxing Airport terminal.


%Arabica Coffee On West Jianguo Road, Shanghai


Popular Jury Prize

There are five %Arabica coffee stores in Shanghai, and this one, located on Jianguo West Road in Xuhui District, is ranked number one in the hearts of coffee lovers, designed by Zhou Ping Aoyama.

The 50-square-foot building, however, doesn’t seem special on the whole, but it eschews the usual approach to façades in favor of curved transparent glass and a small courtyard, which unexpectedly allows the coffee shop to have a dialogue with the entire street.

West Jianguo Road is one of Shanghai’s most romantic neighborhoods, lined with sycamore trees. The light and shadows of the trees and people outside are all visible as part of the shop.

When I was there, I could see people standing on one side of the street, drinking coffee, talking and taking selfies. I think the free atmosphere created by the architecture is more interesting than the buildings themselves.
