Marc Goodwin photographs 11 architecture studios in Beijing

Photographer Marc Goodwin visited 11 architecture studios in Beijing to create this photoset, which offers a glimpse inside the workplaces of MADZhang Ke and Vector Architects.

The board variety of offices in the Chinese capital captured by Goodwin, who runs the photography studio Archmospheres, range from a darkly lit former boiler room to apartments once used by diplomats.

Zhang Ke’s studio ZAO/standardarchitecture is located in an old warehouse with a faceted roof pierced by a long skylight. Board-marked concrete walls running along one side of the open-planned space outline nooks for meeting spaces and a library.

The 105 employees of MAD – founded by Chinese architect Ma Yansong – reside in a former print works. Existing wooden trusses and brickwork walls remain exposed on the upper floor.

Walls, floors, structural beams and pipework are all painted white in the former a university building that Vector Architects‘ studio has worked in for two years.

The offices of UrbanusCrossboundaries and Chiasmus Partners are also included in the photoset – the latest in Goodwin’s series of architects’ studios in different cities. The photographer has previously visited Paris, London, and Nordic studios.
