The exhibition VERSO EST _ Chinese Architectural Landscapes has the prestige of presenting, for the first time in Rome, examples of architectural works that have contributed to radically modifying the landscape of Chinas metropolises over the last 10 years. For precise curatorial reasons, the majority of these buildings are unknown to the general public, and designed by architects who honed their skills during the maximum period of national growth.




Created in occasion of the Year of Chinese Culture in Italy, the exhibition is an important moment of collaboration between the MAXXI, the NAMOC National Art Museum of China and the CIEA China International Exhibition Agency. The chance to work with these prestigious institutions represents the growing need to create connections and virtuous circles between diverse cultural realties, an aspect of our contemporary era cultivated by the MAXXI from its foundation.





In particular, the exhibition offers an opportunity to the public, composed of students, professionals and the simply curious, to study the experiences of the nation elected by the Financial Times as the worlds construction superpower. A voyage through drawings, models, photographs and multimedia installations that accompany visitors on a discovery of some of the most relevant themes to have influenced the definition of urban scenarios in modern-day China.


特别值得一提的是,这个展览为包括学生、专业人士乃至那些对中国抱有好奇心的观众提供了一个深入了解这个被《金融时报》评选为“当今世界新兴的超级力量”的国度。徜徉在由手绘图、 模型、图片和多媒体装置等组成的展览中,观众如同踏上发现之旅,去感受和寻觅那些对于定义当代中国城市景象起到影响作用的关键因素。


For the MAXXI, Verso Est represents an ulterior episode in the definition of a network of international and intercultural exchanges dedicated to the promotion of the contemporary arts that makes the Museum a dynamic laboratory of research and experimentation.


MAXXI博物馆致力于国际跨文化交流活动的组织以推广当代艺术,并希望博物馆因此成为生机勃勃的实验室,为研究与实验提供契机。从这一点来说, “向东方——中国建筑景观”展的举办具有深远的意义。

With this exhibition MAXXI Architettura confirms its international vocation: in the wake of SPAZIO, Rietveld or West 8, the Museum continues to confront diverse and progressively more contemporary realities.


“向东方——中国建筑景观”展再一次见证了MAXXI建筑中心的国际使命。继SPAZIO,Rietveld以及West 8的展览之后,博物馆将继续推进跨文化交流,展示不断进步的当代现实。


VERSO EST. Chinese Architectural Landscapes is an incomparable occasion for study and comparison; it is the mirror of a reality in which the cultural dimension must continually confront issues of development, a condition that produces ever more innovative and futuristic works of architecture.

For the first time in Rome, the exhibition offers a voyage into the ideas of Chinese architects through an interpretation of nine themes that identify the physiognomy of Chinas landscapes of the past decade: ecology and urbanisation, reconstruction, memory, urban and rural environments, cultural architecture, traditional building systems, man and nature, public art and photography.





The exhibitions curator, Fang Zhenning, offers us proposals in which parametric design confronts traditional Chinese building processes, and delicate artistic elements. The exhibition emphasises the leading role being assumed by China in recent years in the field of construction. The layout of the exhibition presents us with experimental methods and dynamics in continuous evolution, interpreting the memory of the artist of the contemporary urban and architectural landscape through models, photographs, video and multimedia material.




This exhibition renews MAXXI Architetturas desire to present itself as an incubator in the realm of international debate, and as an active element in an approach to research simultaneously attentive to the local and the global dimension of our contemporary era.

The Rise and Re-Rise of Chinese Architecture


The MAXXI is only one year old. Nonetheless, the Museum is already beginning to broaden its horizons beyond the limits of Italy and Europe, abandoning the most traditional contexts to investigate the artistic and architectural landscapes of emerging countries and continents: China, India, Korea, South America, etc. More specifically, we are excited at the idea of co-producing together with various Chinese institutions an exhibition of contemporary architecture in China for many reasons. The first is clearly announced by the curators: by 2020 China will be responsible for one fifth of global construction. This means that it will stand, even more than it does now, as a crucial meeting point between architectural culture and the building industry, in other words, an irresistible magnet for archistars, ambitious architects and the architecturally-addicted. The second reason relies on the open and intense exchange linking China and Italy, grounded in the age of Matteo Ricci, and today fuelling an increasing flow of Italian firms designing important buildings and new cities in China, young Italian architects working in China-based offices, and young Chinese designers choosing Europe and Italy for their education and practical experience.


What is striking in fact is not only Fuksas, Gregotti and other large-scale offices landing in China to offer their professional and cultural contribution to growth, but more than anything else the relentless migration of young professionals and students both Chinese and Europeans travelling back and forth along the ancient Via della Seta (the Silk Road) to develop their professional skills. The third reason, perhaps the most essential to this exhibition project, is that in all likelihood it will reveal a second generation of contemporary Chinese protagonist in architecture. 


A generation that is already beyond the brutal scheme of local for quantity vs. foreign for quality and witness to mutual collaborations between Chinese artists and architects and leading international figures. What is more, this generation can boast a respectful number of interesting and important buildings designed by native Chinese architects who are beginning to address issues of sustainability and environmental urgencies. Given these premises, the possibility to visit this show will be a more than welcome opportunity for the MAXXI's public, offered the chance to examine an architectural universe known only superficially, and to access new ideas and new answers related to the topics and  links between architecture and life that the Museum consistently works to address.
