"The idea is to bring the best of what the world can offer to China. And hopefully, one day, our aspiration is to bring the best of what China can offer - from a design point of view - back to the world."
Founded in 2004 by partners Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu, Neri & Hu Design and Research Office is an inter-disciplinary architectural design practice based in Shanghai, China with an additional office in London.
Neri & Hu works internationally providing architecture, interior, master planning, graphic, and product design services. Neri & Hu is composed of a multi-cultural staff who speak 30 different languages, The diversity of the team reinforces a core vision for the practice: to respond to a global worldview incorporating overlapping design disciplines for a new paradigm in architecture.
Neri & Hu's location is purposeful. With Shanghai considered a new global frontier, the studio is in the centre of this contemporary chaos. The city's cultural, urban, and historic contexts function as a point of departure for the architectural explorations involved in every project. Because new sets of contemporary problems relating to buildings now extend beyond traditional architecture to include other contemporary disciplines.
