A presentation by Christopher Lee of world-renowned architectural practice Serie Architects.

Serie Architects, led by Christopher Lee, has gained a reputation designing distinctive and innovative buildings for education, research and culture. The practice is currently working on several high-profile educational and research based buildings internationally, among them the new School of Design & Environment, National University of Singapore. Currently under construction, it will be the first zero-energy building in the tropics, and features five distinct types of spaces that promotes innovation, collaboration and entrepreneurship. Serie’s work is known for its spatial intelligence, formal elegance and contextual engagement. The practice’s design intelligence is informed by Christopher Lee’s long involvement in teaching and research in Harvard Graduate School of Design and the Architectural Association School of Architecture.
