Marcella Campa and Stefano Avesani are focusing on the urban growth of Chinese cities and their transformation since 2003. They curated the monographic issue n.78 of the international magazine AREA about Chinese contemporary visual art and architecture. In June 2005 they won the international Archiprix prize in Glasgow with a project for the Hutongs in Beijing. In October 2005 they moved to China and started working on the Instant Hutong art project and on a parallel research on contemporary Chinese urban habitat. After studying and working in China and Europe, they established their own architectural practice in Beijing.
