When Mies van der Rohe uttered those famous words “less is more”, he was surely speaking of projects like the Waterside Buddhist Shrine, designed by ARCHSTUDIO. The building, located in Tangshan, just east of Beijing, is proof that powerful spaces can be created within the simplest of structures. Through carefully selected materials and meticulous detailing, ARCHSTUDIO has created a building well worthy of being named one of the Projects of the Year as part of the 2018 A+Awards.
