Profile of Atelier Liu Yuyang Architects, headquartered in China. Five projects submitted by Atelier Liu Yuyang Architects have been published on Architecture News Plus (ANP).
Established in Hong Kong and Shanghai, Atelier Liu Yuyang Architects (ALYA) works to improve the built-environment in an honest, meaningful and sustainable way. Equipped with global perspective and local know-how, we believe that sound research forms the basis for intelligent design, and through design excellence we add value to our clients and to the society-at-large. Our design portfolio includes the acclaimed Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art (Shanghai MoCA), the “Han River Renaissance” — a series of pedestrian tunnels in Seoul, Korea, high-end residential interiors in Hong Kong, storage and manufacturing facility in the Pearl River Delta, and most recently a set of kiosks design for Shanghai’s Nanjing Road Pedestrian District.
