Full Description

Yung Ho Chang is not only renowned in China but throughout the world, and here he brings together a collection of his impressive architecture projects in an English edition for the first time. At Yung Ho Chang’s practice FCJZ, besides space and its enclosure, they tend to wonder if they can in fact “design” the way in which people encounter the world and live their lives; in other words, they seek to design experience—tangible, physical experience. Containing 44 design projects from his impressive work portfolio, this volume of design work is organised around an agenda of their research interests within experience design, as well as beyond: Experience of City, Experience of Everyday, Experience of In-Out-Door, Experience of Learning, Experience of Lifestyle, Experience of Mountain and Water, Experience of Movement, Experience of Stories, and Experience of Time and Space. These categories reflect a wide range of Chang’s research interests, which include architecture, landscape, furniture, kitchenware, jewelry, food, and clothing. The book also spotlights narratives and comments from famous architectural critics and industry experts, providing an enriching third-person perspective to complete the rich content of this work.
