The Chinese Research Center for Urban Development and Environment under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences sponsored the event, in cooperation with the World Landmark Association and the International Urban Cultural Association. Eleven Chinese firms and nine international firms were recognized for contributing to the development of landmark buildings in China in the past three decades.

In addition to MulvannyG2, SOM and KPF architectural firms were recognized from the U.S. Chinese firms selected include ECADI in Shanghai, China Architectural Design Institute and Co. in Beijing, and Beijing Architectural Design Institute and Co. Designers recognized were overseas and local Chinese including Cui Kai, Chin Taining, and Zhu Xiaodi, in addition to Ming Zhang.

“To participate in China’s incredible growth and modernization is a privilege and especially meaningful to me. As a youth growing up in Nanjing, I never imagined that I would be recognized for designing landmark buildings in China today,” said Ming Zhang. “Designing buildings in China is an architect’s dream, as developers seek high-imagery projects to fill skylines and make bold statements.”

Ming Zhang is Design Director at MulvannyG2, responsible for projects in the U.S. and international markets such as China, Japan, Korea, India, and the United Arab Emirates. Some of his notable projects include: China Construction Bank, Xiamen; Shanghai Fudan University Crowne Plaza Hotel, Shanghai; Zhangjiang Semiconductor Research Park, Shanghai; Fujian Provincial Electric and Power Company, Fuzhou; Redmond City Hall, Washington; Towers on Capitol Mall, California.
