Ruan Hao, 28 years old, founded LYCS Architecture in 2010.

Ruan, is always moving as he runs a company with over 30 employees. The video shows an innovative project, in which, due to the limited space, Ruan designed a running track on the roof of a school building. He was the first person in China to do this.

Ruan's work is all about breaking rules. His fearless sense of adventure shines through in his projects.


The 14th International Architecture Exhibition takes place from 7 June to 23 November 2014 at the Giardini and Arsenale venues (Preview on 5 and 6 June) and in various other venues in Venice.

EMGdotART, a privately funded foundation, brings over 10 Chinese individuals and organizations to the exhibition to showcase the Chinese thoughts on this year’s theme: Fundamentals.

The exhibition is titled as "Adaptation: architecture and change in China" and the curators are Marino Folin & MovingCities.

Wang Shuo in Beijing, Zhao Yang in Dali and Ruan Hao in Hangzhou are three of the young elites.
