An exterior view of one of the buildings in the Xianshan Campus of the China Academy of Art, in Hangzhou, China. Its rising and falling window patterns and stairways are an almost whimsical contrast to the industrialized rows of identical buildings typical of rapidly urbanizing China. Architect Wang Shu has been awarded the 2012 Pritzker Achitecture Prize.
