Small & Interesting in China: Sutherland Hussey

Small and interesting are two words that seem somewhat at odds with Chinese and Architecture, but it does exist. I'm going to try to do a few postings on people doing interesting smaller scale structures on the mainland over the coming weeks. First up is Sutherland Hussey, an Edinburgh practice who are starting to make moves into this market. The top image is a gateway building for a ski resort near Chengdu, while the next is quite a major new commission for a museum also in Chengdu. 11 million people aside, I'm starting to think there may be more than one reason (the food) to make it the Sichuan capital one day???
