Zou Yingxi
Founder of SYN Architecture
Founder of the SYN Community for Practitioners of the NewPastoralism
Co-founder of SYN Architecture - Germany

Mr. Zou Yingxi –founder and main architect of SYN architects, has been working in the field of architectural planning and design for more than 20 years.
Graduated from the Environmental Art and Design Department of the Central Academy of Arts and Crafts (predecessor of the Academy of Fine Arts, Tsinghua University), and the Architectural Design Institute of the Berlin Art University. Since then, he has designed the Museum of the Longmen Grottoes, natural attraction considered a World Cultural Heritage by the UNESCO; the Yanjiao Campus of China Central Academy of Fine Arts; the Wuxi Pastoral Complex of New Pastoralism; the Mafengwo Global Headquarters; as well as the regional planning and design of the landmark buildings for the Jinhai Lake area; to name a few among many other design projects.
In the course of his career, he has showed great passion and a high-degree of responsibility toward design. Regarding design research, he has keenly explored the interaction between people, architecture and the surrounding environment. In recent years, his main creative direction has developed toward urban and rural integration, as well as cultural tourism projects in China. Not only concerned about the relationship between architectural design and urban and rural life, Mr. Zou further promotes the use of culture to eliminate the gap between rural and urban ways of thinking. His design ideology focuses on creativity, the depiction of ideological connotations and achieving functional value, while procuring sustainable development and fulfilling an existential end. He firmly believes that a building can only have one of two possible ends, to be conserved or to be destroyed. Good design will always remain valuable over time, and eventually become a form of architectural heritage, and this is precisely the objective behind the philosophy of SYN architects.
