The founders of SpActrum graduated from UCL and AA School, and have long-term practice experiences in the world's top architectural design firms and profound fine art & academic backgrounds. Under the leadership of three company partners, Yan Pan, Zhen Li, and Yimeng Tang, SpActrum has stepped into the core area of China’s contemporary social changes and drastic urbanization process through a large number of architectural practices.
Combining an international vision and cross-disciplinary knowledge, SpActrum has carried out in-depth thinking and a thorough exploration of architecture, always in search of the quality of “profound reality” in architecture creation.
