dps is a plural-process, design-oriented studio within the domain of architecture, urbanism and design sprung from different affiliations in the China -region’s multicultural landscape.
dps stimulates interaction between different cultures to invigorate its design ideas for a global world with regional sensitivities. Its partners come from diametrically different cultures and give strength and depth to its design language. Its collective team of architects, designers, and specialized consultants seek the creative synergy between architecture, environment, landscape and design through a clearly-defined conceptual process to create a unique, cost-effective complete solution tailored to the client’s needs.
dps spans beyond geographical boundaries. Current projects extend from China to Switzerland; from Portugal to the Dominican Republic. Its base of operation is situated in Shanghai with offices in Chongqing and Europe and partner offices in Beijing, Hong Kong and New York.
dps design lies within the perimeter of architecture and design, yet pushes the envelope of current thought and practice. It explores the fabric of our society to transform sustainable concepts into functioning projects, using the very essence of our environment as the basis of its ecological ideas; the elements of fire, earth, metal, water, and wood are utilised to create resonance with our cultural identity.
