Boundaries in architecture become increasingly apparent when working in an international context. Boundaries can mean geographical borders or physical territories but also can refer to social, cultural and professional difference. Architectural practitioners working in an international or global context often find that while the projects are international, regulation and professional practice methods and procedures remain at the national level. The aims of this conference are to bring together practitioners, academics and professional bodies from across China and internationally to discuss the key issues, challenges/opportunities, surrounding architectural practice in the global context and showcase the innovative and best practice methods architects develop. The conference will build a platform to share knowledge and foster collaborations in order to develop research links and practice collaborations between professional bodies, academia and industry.
