The Museum of Modern Art announces Reuse, Renew, Recycle: Recent Architecture from China, an exhibition highlighting a new generation of Chinese architects and their commitment to social and environmental sustainability. In the street-level galleries, the exhibition will present eight projects that speak to a multiplicity of architectural methodologies, ranging from the adaptive reuse of former industrial buildings, the recycling of building materials, and the reinterpretation of ancient construction techniques, to the economic rejuvenation of rural villages or entire regions through non-invasive architectural insertions.

Anchoring the exhibition will be projects by Pritzker Prize–winning Amateur Architecture Studio, Archi-Union Architects, Atelier Deshaus, DnA_Design and Architecture, Studio Zhu Pei, Vector Architects, and Aga Khan Award laureate ZAO/standardarchitecture. Developed following a four-year research initiative, which has included extensive conversations with the architects and numerous site visits to all the projects presented, the exhibition will include models, drawings, photographs, videos, and architectural mock-ups drawn from a recent acquisition of some 160 works of Chinese contemporary architecture
