Nickl & Partner has been active in China for 15 years and during that period the Beijing office has built major projects, primarily in the field of healthcare buildings. Reason enough to celebrate!
The “Healing Architecture” exhibition, which has already been shown in Berlin, Munich, Zürich and – most recently – Hamburg, travelled to China for this occasion.
The opening at the Liu Hong Dian architecture museum in Shenyang on 11 November 2018 also celebrated an additional event: the founding of our second Chinese office in Shenyang.
Following the welcoming speeches given by both Matthias Biermann, the Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany in Shenyang, and important representatives from science, business and industry, Prof. Christine Nickl-Weller opened the exhibition with a brief talk.
Students from Shenyang Technical University had an opportunity to present their impromptu designs on the subject of “Digital Healing” in the panel discussion that followed. The programme – developed in cooperation with Nickl & Partner – focussed on the design of a minimal medical services centre in the age of digitalisation.
The event concluded with a joint celebration of the first anniversary of the Liu Hong Dian architecture museum. As a successful example of revitalising architecture and urban planning, it is located in a former boiler house.
The exhibition will be on display at the Liu Hong Dian architecture museum until 10 December 2018.
