playze is a network of local architecture studios in Berlin (Germany), Shanghai (China) and Zurich (Switzerland). It is a project to explore the possibilities of mobility, intercultural exchanges and global market niches. Its activities in spatial design range from teaching and research to the classical execution of the practice of architecture.
The work of playze includes one of the biggest organic farms in China, the German Pavilion for the Expo 2010 in Shanghai (as local architect), a thermal bath in Luxembourg, an urban planning museum in Ningbo, as well as several other built architectural and urban projects in Asia and Europe. The work of the studio has been widely published in magazines and online platforms like Domus, Detail, designboom and dezeen.
