News Design China Beijing 2018
“Beijing, which was designated a UNESCO City of Design just six years ago, boasts buildings by the likes of Herzog & de Meuron, Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster, and Steven Holl. So it stands to reason that a design fair was just around the corner. The inaugural edition of Design China Beijing, the city's answer to ICFF, is now slated for September 20 through September 23, 2018, at the National Agricultural Exhibition Center, where it will be the anchor event for Beijing Design Week,”
