  • Comment on: Guangzhou, China – A rock and a high place: British architects complete major projects in China’s third city

    "Originally intended to be expressed in concrete and metal, the region’s ready supply of granite soon became the preferred choice of material, (...)."
    China is still a country where exposed concrete seems officially abhorred. No matter how famous the architect may be, it is almost impossible, to find a building done with Le Corbusier or Tadao Ando's material of choice. So we have, yet again, another granite cladded building. Nothing wrong with that except we are to miss a good opportunity for exposed concrete to be liked in China. Now, the stone is not even from local (Guangdong) quarries but from relative far Sichuan.
