Based in Shenzhen of China, Atelier Aperion is international team of creative architects and designers. We use the ancient word APERION as our design philosophy and methodology, which leads us to the endless thinking, research and practice towards the origin of architecture. We take each project as an adventure on social operation rules, a re-link to the nature, and a reveal to the human life.
Design always start with questions to questions. We never set boundaries for answers, which is a very dangerous for architectural practice. The limited answers make buildings lose their lasting vitality. Therefore, we often modify the task book to redefine the core strategy and goals of the design through communication with the owner. Architecture should be constantly defined by real-world problems, rather than static templates of history.
Our approach is not limited to traditional space, but to the behavioral psychology behind the geometry, which determines how space is combined around human needs. Meantime, we are also interested in unrolling the timeline of space to provide unlimited possibilities for future imagination, architecture will become a participant and creator of future life.
Human being is the measure of everything. Our designs always start with the oldest prototypes from anthropology, undergo an evolution of changing environments, hybridize with different functions, blend with various desires, and finally return to the most primitive form. In the past seven years, our works have spread all over China, and many of them are in high-density cities, bringing exciting changes to their lives.
