- Atelier Deshaus
BiographyAtelier Deshaus is interested in places, and in history. The studio has been interpreting these two themes through architecture for more than a decade, always starting out by getting to know the location of their projects and allowing it to settle in the architects’ memories. The past and the history of architecture in China are linked with the present in their attempt to understand the contemporary idiom.
The practice is based in Shanghai and managed by Liu Yichun and Chen Yifeng, both of whom graduated from Tongji University Faculty of Architecture. Since 2001 the architects have worked primarily on public buildings and homes, standing out on the international scene and winning numerous awards, such as the Business Weeks/Architectural Record China Awards, the WA Chinese Architecture Awards and the FAR EAST Architecture Awards. Architecture Record magazine selected them as one of the 10 most avant-garde practices of 2011. Their work has been showcased in important exhibitions all over the world and in prestigious magazines such as A+U, Area, Lotus, Future, Mark, Wallpaper and Casabella and volumes about contemporary Chinese design including “Positions: Portrait of a New Chinese Architects”, Actar 2008 ,“The Phaidon Atlas of 21st Century World Architecture”, Phaidon 2008, “Architecture in China”, TASCHEN, 2007.
