UNstudio, is a Dutch architectural design studio specializing in architecture and urban development and infrastructural projects, founded in 1988 by Ben van Berkel and Caroline Bos. The name, UNStudio, stands for United Network Studio, referring to the collaborative nature of the practice. In 2009 UNStudio Asia was established, with its first office located in Shanghai, China. UNStudio Shanghai is a full daughter of UNStudio and is intricately connected to UNStudio Amsterdam. Initially serving to facilitate the design process for the Raffles City project in Hangzhou, UNStudio Shanghai has expanded into a full-service design office with a multinational team of all-round and specialist architects. In 2014 we opened our third office in Hong Kong.
