Who We Are

Founded in London in 2013, China Design Centre (CDC) was established by a mission-driven team of architects and designers with a global network.

Why CDC?
China is at a crucial stage in its current development, where economic growth and rapid social transformation is generating a growing awareness of cultural identity. Creativity is seen as the key to unlocking a new realm of social and commercial possibilities. This has led to an increasing desire in China not only to seek out and learn from the world but also to share its own distinctive creative vision in global partnerships.

With professionalism and extensive knowledge of Chinese and British culture and the design industry, CDC have successfully accomplished numerous prestigious innovative projects connecting the East and West during the past 6 years. CDC is recognised as one of the most influential platforms for promoting Chinese design overseas. Contact us for partnership opportunities.
