The other keynote speaker include Thomas Heatherwick,  Masayuki Kurokawa, Prof. Denis Morisset etc.


Architecture, art and design once belonged together and as human civilisation progressed , the separation has taken its place.  From architecture to art and design, we sit down together with studio founder Daniel Statham , Shanghai Fiu gallery owner Liangyin Shen and Siberian jewelry designer Andrey Yarden to talk about how architecture, art and design influence each other. From something artistic to something that require fine engineering, these three eternally coexist, forming a kind of symbiotic and reciprocal relationship. “How does the collaborations between three different professions take place” ,   “Is architecture under art and design?” ,  “ Does art enhance architecture ?”  , “Is design a form of art ?” In this discussion, we look at their intertwined relationship.
