Initiation of IAF

Mr. He Wenguang, the  CEO of Guangzhou Design Week, has give a speech about his intention to initiate "Ideal Architecture Festival” which is focusing on unbuilt architectual works. His was inspired by an article about the famous English architects Zaha Hadid who has no built architecture works before 43 years old but did a great success job after and become famous. Her experience indicates that unbuilt works does not mean unpractical, instead it might be full of pioneering ideas and marvelous design philosophies.
