Cordogan Clark & Associates is providing master plan and architectural design for a multi-family villa site in Suzhou, China. This master plan and design for a prominent and historically sensitive site integrates water, nature, and architecture. It respects key elements of the local design tradition, while bringing it new life for the 21st century.
The structural clarity of Suzhou and the Jiangsu Province's traditional architecture is complemented by a playful and even sensual approach to detail. I. M. Pei, coming from a profound background that combined an appreciation of traditional Chinese architecture with the Bauhaus and modern design, distilled Jiangsu Province architecture to its essence at the nearby Suzhou Museum.
