Robert Adams Exhibits at the Third Architectural Beijing Biennial

Robert Adams, assistant professor of architecture, is exhibiting his recent research focused on material culture in contemporary China at the 3rd Architectural Beijing Biennial (ABB). The exhibit is displayed from late October until early November. ABB is located at Beijing Design Park.751, a former factory in the Dashanzi 798 complex which is a thriving arts/design district in the city. The work includes Adams’s research on architecture and urbanization in China with an emphasis on new media, material culture, and infrastructure. He also presented a lecture at the ABB. The theme for the ABB is “Ecological City/Building.” Adams was recently named a faculty associate at the University of Michigan Center for Chinese Studies.
