Un-Forbidden office was set up in 2002 following the advice from Mr. Zhu Xiao Di, the President of Beijing Institute of Architectural Design.  It is the first organizational restructure and is the earliest form of design studio in BIAD. There are two major objectives. Firstly, we want to establish a design platform which is able to undertake important tasks of design and research, and to provide strong support to BIAD.  Secondly, we want to approach the design market by using the latest design methodology.  After carefully marketing and selectively targeting, we would conduct design research activities with the most appropriate design techniques in order to produce high quality architecture.

Over the years, Un-Forbidden office continues to expand successfully.  Under the new studio-based system of BIAD, a number of talented and creative young architects continue to incorporate their skillful potentials. Many outstanding projects were completed due to the new improvements. Our completed works are not only restricted in China, but are also apparent oversea. The new Embassy of China in Australia is to be completed in Canberra.  This will bring more understanding of our design philosophy and practice to a wider audience. 

When facing the competitive design market, we always set ourselves a crucial objective which is to raise the standards of design quality.  In Un-Forbidden office, we follow rational thinking and are open minded to design collaboration with experts in different fields.  We believe inspiration of design comes from reflection on our society, perception of the environmental issues, comprehension of regional culture, communication with the market and clients and implementation of construction techniques and materials.  We are confident in bringing forward more possibilities in cities construction under the globalization context.
