The home of architectural criticism. Since 1896

The award winning home of the world's best architecture drawings.

“The Beautiful Future” is a unique collaboration between Nick Bonner of Koryo Tours, Dominic Johnson-Hill of Plastered 8, and selected North Korean artists.

Each piece was hand-painted in Pyongyang, and based on Nick and Dominic’s sketches inspired by their 20 years in China. They wanted to portray a place lost in time, uniting a challenging past,a dynamic present and an imagined future where all is bright and beautiful. As outsiders looking in Nick, Dominic, and the North Korean artists have created a city whose socialist traditions are juxtaposed with present pleasures and modern city idols.

Welcome to visit “The Beautiful Future” Exhibition. The exhibition runs from Sep 21 – Oct 3, 2013 (Beijing, China) as part of the Beijing Design Week.
