Using the CCTV building project and MoMA's exhibition as points of departure, architects, scholars, and designers discuss the emerging East/West architectural discourse and the rapid urbanization of China. The program addresses the current importation of Western paradigms to the East and Eastern products to the West, along with other key issues concerning Western and Chinese architectural exchanges. This program is a collaboration between The Museum of Modern Art and the Department of Exhibitions and Public Programs, Parsons The New School for Design.
In conjunction with the exhibition OMA in Beijing: China Central Television Headquarters by Rem Koolhaas and Ole Scheeren
