Communes Under the Great Wall

The Commune by the Great Wall is a private collection of modern architecture designed by 12 Asian architects. It was exhibited at La Biennale di Venezia in 2002 winning a special prize. Ms Zhang Xin, the mastermind and investor for the project, was recognized for her “bold personal initiative which emphasizes the role of 12 Asian architects in building privately-owned houses in a definitively contemporary manner.” The Centre Pompidou, Paris now houses the exhibited model, made of wood and cardboard, as its first permanent collection from China.

The Commune by the Great Wall is near Badaling, which is one of the biggest tourist destinations of Beijing. Commune didn’t sit beside the ancient Great Wall. The commune by the great wall is a collection of contemporary architecture consisting of private houses designed by 12 of Asia’s best-known architects. The grand vision is to encourage creativity that will influence a whole new generation of Asian architects- developers and consumers. At the Shuiguan section of the great wall- the commune shares the tranquility of the mountains with one of the world’s heritage sites. Eleven houses and one clubhouse are nestled in a valley totaling eight square kilometers. There are 1 commune- each of which has living room- dining room- kitchen- bedrooms and bathrooms. Some of them have sauna rooms- rooftops- terraces or BBQ facilities. Not only commune by the great wall provides comfortable accommodation and delicious food- it is also a wonderful place for meetings- events- weddings- film shooting and fashion show.

The Commune has furniture and other interior decorations from such distinguished designers as Serge Mouille, Thierry Hoppe, Von Robinson, Philippe Starck, Alex Strub, Claudio Colucci, Ross Menuez, Kaname Okajima, Jonas Damon, Karim Rashid, Matthew Hilton, Marc Newson, and Michael Young.
