The annual architecture lecture 2016 wang shu and lu wenyu
Lu Wenyu (Chinese: 陆文宇) is a Chinese architect and cofounder, with her husband Wang Shu, of the firm Amateur Architecture Studio. They chose the name as a rebuke of the "professional, soulless architecture" practiced in China, which they believe has contributed to the large-scale demolition of many old urban neighborhoods.
In 2010, Lu Wenyu and her husband and business partner Wang Shu together won the German Schelling Architecture Prize.
In 2012, Wang Shu was awarded the Pritzker Prize for the work the duo completed together in their firm, Amateur Architecture Studio. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, Wang Shu expressed his sentiment that Lu deserved to share the Pritzker Prize with him.
