The 2011 Shenzhen and Hong Kong Bi-City Biennale, entitled “Architecture Creates Cities. Cities Create Architecture”, addresses the challenges of sustainability, vitality, and urban modalities—including reflections on the city and the forum of the Architecture Biennale. The 2011 Biennale brings together more than 100 architects, curators, designers, artists, writers, and other creative individuals whose work expatiates the significance of urbanism and architecture on a broad international and contemporary scale.
