I'll admit I slid into last night's Chinese-design panel late, with the Q&A already underway, so maybe I missed the part where the panelists were obsessing about other areas of design, but architecture in particular was right at the forefront of the discussion. Likewise, the architectural development in Beijing were what I found most commanding in the China Design Now exhibit currently up at PAM, which is responsible for the sudden flurry of China-related events. So it's only fitting that tonight is "China Architecture Now," a discussion with Chinese architect Yung Ho Chang in the museum's ballroom. If you want more info on the massive explosion of dramatic development happening on the other side of the world, get thee to 1219 SW Park with $12 in tow ($5 if you're a member), by 7 pm.
