OPEN believes in the innovative power of architecture to transform people and the way they live, while striking the balance between the manmade and nature.
Founded in New York City, OPEN established its Beijing office in 2008 and since then has been widely recognised for its boundary pushing work on projects such as School as a Village in Shanghai, Pingshan Performing Arts Center, Tank Shanghai, and the UCCA Dune Art Museum.
In 2021, OPEN will complete work on the ambitious Chapel of Sound, a semi-outdoor concert hall that rests on the floor of a valley north of Beijing.
