yung ho chang installation at the V&A museum

yung ho chang in the V&A’s john madejski garden from: june 2nd until september 1st, 2008

to coincide with the V&A’s major exhibition ‘china design now‘, one of china’s leading architects, yung ho chang will create a specially designed installation ‘poly & chai’ in the V&A’s john madejski garden.

for the latest in the V&A’s summer garden commissions, chang has devised a set of free
standing screens inspired by traditional chinese garden design that will be arranged around
the space for visitors to walk through. the screens will be made from green recyclable
plastic paving blocks, commonly used in parking lots and construction sites in china

‘yung ho chang established china’s first private architecture firm, atelier FCJZ, in 1993. as well as overseeing a number of high profile architectural projects in china, chang is head of architecture at MIT (massachusetts institute of technology). his work can be seen in china design now, which showcases the latest in architecture, fashion and graphics to emerge from china’.
