The Mrs. Fan's Plugin House of People's Architecture Office is shortlisted for the prestigious Beazley Designs of the Year 2017 , among 13 architecture nominees including Zaha Hadid Architects, OMA and Adjaye Associates. This was announced by the Design Museum in London on the 16th of August.
"Activism and protest has proven to be a strong theme in this year’s nominations,” said the curator of Beazley Designs.
Mrs. Fan’s Plugin House demonstrates PAO's guiding belief that "design is for the masses" and innovatively responds to socioeconomic issues present in the historical central area of Beijing. The Plugin House, developed using PAO's proprietary prefabricated Plugin Panels, allows clients to live in familiar, centrally-located areas in units that are both energy efficient and offer a high standard of living.
