U.S. Embassy - Beijing
(# 1184)
Images Description Credits
This new embassy responds to its diplomatic role as a secure space that is both welcoming and respectful of local traditions. As a sovereign U.S. presence on Chinese soil, the embassy reflects American cultural, social and political values while respecting China's ancient and extraordinarily vibrant culture. To mitigate its scale and create a light aesthetic, the complex was broken into “neighborhoods.” Simple architectural geometries, coupled with gardens and courtyards, symbolically fuse eastern and western traditions.
