A blog while living in Thailand, China and Mexico 2010-16
Wednesday, October 16, 2013
Interesting forum at Opposite House today, featuring a mix of UK and Chinese creatives: Angelica Cheung (Editor, Vogue China), Graham Fink (Ogilvy), Huishan Zhang (fashion designer), Ian Livingstone (game creator), Simon Chua (architect), and top of the bill Thomas Heatherwick (designer; he hates being called an architect). They talked about what makes them tick, making things, London-Beijing connections... all inspiring stuff. And George Osbourne joined for the reception afterwards before being whisked off to the airport and Wuhan. But the thing that made it particularly enjoyable, even relaxing, was that someone else organized it all.
