RIBA + VitrA Talk: Neri&Hu

20 October 13:00 - 14:30
Organized by: RIBA
Venue: RIBA, Online event

Neri&Hu is an award-winning inter-disciplinary practice based in Shanghai. Founded by Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu in 2004, the practice has since built up their own distinct approach to architecture that pushes beyond traditional boundaries to incorporate interior, product and graphic design.


Key projects include the renovation and extension of a 1930s army headquarters into a new boutique hotel in the South Bund district called The Waterhouse (2010), the Suzhou Chapel (2016) and the Aranya Art Centre (2019).


Alongside leading their practice, Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu have also taught at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and Yale School of Architecture. They have both lectured extensively in many universities such as Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture in New York, KTH School of Architecture in Stockholm and Kent State University at Palazzo Vettori in Florence. Rossana Hu is also a judge on the 2021 RIBA International Prize Grand Jury.


This lecture will be digitally streamed and available globally.


All ticket holders will receive an email with instructions on how to join the event.


Start times are in British Summer Time (GMT+1).
