ENCOUNTERING SUSTAINABILITY IN CHINA Yung-Ho Chang What I am writing is by no means a typical foreword. Instead of introducing the work outside of Beijing, we enclosed a courtyard with buildings and hillside to create a of my colleagues in the Department of Architecture at Massachusetts Institute of milder microclimate. We also employed two traditional materials, earth and wood, Technology (MIT), I will use this opportunity to share my own limited but critical specifically rammed-earth walls and laminated wood frames, to build a structure that experience with the development of sustainability in China. However, I would like to is capable of disintegration and would produce less waste once the house is no longer point out that the authors of this book are among the pioneers for sustainability needed. Although ancient wisdom, rather than advanced technology, was engaged, research and design in China, and they have helped to build the foundation of an we were able to address the issue of sustainability for the first time.

UFIDA R&D Center, Beijing: For this project for a software company, the A CHANGING PRACTICE sustainable design focused on the reorganization of workspaces. The circulation system was transformed into public areas where communication and socialization is As an architect in China, I have been confronted by the issue of sustainability and encouraged and located in zones that receive more daylight and better views.
