On April 16, Liguo Li, founder of Sino-French Architectural Communication Society, Architecte HMONP/Urbaniste Doctorant and Directeur Général et Associé d'ama Chine, delivered a lecture on “French Architecture in China” at the Confucius Institute at the University of Poitiers, in which he introduced China’s achievements in urban construction over recent years and the programs French architectural firms have launched in China.

As China’s economy rapidly develops, issues such as how to meet the needs of business and housing in modern society yet at the same time ensure a harmonious relationship between man and the environment have become vital. China has established extensive cooperation with France in this area, and Dr. Li is a prominent architectural expert. In his lecture, he enumerated the exemplary works in China of celebrated French architectural masters such as J. M. Charpentier and Paul Andreu to show the collision and fusion of Chinese and Western art of architecture. Dr. Li’s design philosophy of keeping man and nature, city and the eco-environment in harmony, represented by his own projects “La mémoire de l’eau” in Hengqin Island, Zhuhai and “Le chemin de shambala” in Chengdu, generated audiences’ huge interest. After the lecture, the audiences posed many questions and opinions were discussed and exchanged.
