In July 2019, Mr. Qiu Jiang, President of THE C.P.C. GROUP was invited to participate in the “Community Business Innovation, New Era of Offices” Forum and to give a speech on the forms and functions of office architecture.
Mr. Qiu’s speech was forthright and pointed out that the form of the building should follow its function. After an analysis of the cases like China’s Forbidden City, Gothic churches, and the Suzhou Museum, Mr. Qiu gave a brief exposé about the political, spiritual, and cultural aspects of architectural functions.
And in the economic world, facing market forces, diversified functional aspects have also spawned different types of office building designs. Mr. Qiu illustrated this relationship between forms and functions with the office building works of THE C.P.C. GROUP.
In the dialogue session of the forum that followed, the guests warmly discussed future innovations of the office operational model and the impact of the market on design in the new era. Mr.Qiu put forward the viewpoint of “explore demand” and “create demand”, and expressed his understanding and expectation of the future development of office buildings.
