Guo Qiming has long been engaged in spreading of the international culture especially of the architectural culture. As the executive director of’ Design China-Design and Architecture Forum’, he has organized and hosted the forum for 186 times. The main participants and speakers are internationally renowned architects and artists. Several themes of the forum are quite well regarded, such as’ China-Italy Forum’, ‘China-Germany EXPO Forum’, ‘Updating the Design of China Exhibition’. The forum has promoted the exchanges of design industry, as well as the friendship of international designers.
Guo Qiming’s design works are more about the thinking of living environment and the protecting of the nature environment. he has his own idea about architecture itself, advocated that design works should focus on the integration of art , space and universal values, meanwhile, architects should pay more attention to the public, not only a few group of rich people.
Main points of Guo Qiming
The civilization of architecture is not only the change of form, but also the breeding and growing in the native cultural context. And it is a carrier of national culture and sprit. A nation which has a history is lucky, for it knows where it came from. The happiest thing for an architect is to see his children know how to build their country and city. Therefore, creating a city which has era characteristics and national spirits are every architect’s historical responsibility. Hope they deserve their own lands.
City is the result of gregarious living. It is the cultural differences and the chaotic life values that make numerous unordered and weird urban design. And the original intention of urban design is ecological harmony instead of the equation of technical drawings. That’s a dialogue among time, space and life. Design is the art of living. All we have to do is set a beautiful life plan and try our best to make it come true.
The famous urbanologist Eliel Saarinen said that let me have a look your city, I can tell what is the pursuit of city residents in culture. If civilization is the soul of a city, then urban sculpture is the best symbol of it. They witness different culture and sprits in different ages.
