A World Architecture News Business Briefing examines the current volatile market conditions in China and the impact they will have on the architecture industry

This Thursday leading architects will be gathering in London for an exclusive market briefing; Is the Bubble About to Burst? Three concise presentations on the health of the construction markets in Asia, Middle East and the UK will be followed by Q and A. The Session will be hosted by Malcolm Reading.

Growth statements for China have long been suspected of being overly buoyant and the truth is that there has been a slowdown in the Chinese economy going on for the past five years. Future growth forecasts for both China and India are now being revised downwards. The consensus is that globally things will get tougher with little room for economies to spend their way out of trouble.

This World Architecture News Business Briefing examines the current volatile market conditions in China, their future trajectory and their likely repercussions from an architect’s perspective: current construction market conditions and the implications for the architecture industry within various global markets.
