Oscar Ko on Tongxian

Vladimir Belogolovsky : And finally, is there one particular project built in China over the last decade or two that you particularly admire, either by Chinese or foreign architect?

Oscar Ko: I like a small brick building Tongxian Gatehouse, the artists-in-residence structure at the arts community outside of Beijing. It was designed by what used to be Boston-based Office dA and is now NADAAA led by Nader Tehrani and Katherine Faulkner. Everyone was talking about giant iconic projects for the Olympics at the time but to me it was this small building that stood out. I went to visit it and I really enjoyed its materiality, authenticity, and integrity.

Women in Construction: Katherine Faulkner

Helbling features Katie in this year’s Women in Construction Week, asking her what inspires her, how she keeps the office aligned with its core values, and how she supports gender equality at NADAAA. Read the full interview HERE.

 

“The women of NADAAA are so strong and determined that I can’t imagine the firm functioning without them […] my advice to many young women is your career is defined by you. Constantly reflect on your values and ask yourself, “Is this what I really want to do?” There are many paths through the architectural profession. Whether it’s your role on a project, the culture of your employer, or the way you spend your working life – things change constantly. Question yourself, stand firm in your decisions, and execute.”

Happy International Women’s Day!
