Cui Kai is Academician of the China Academy of Engineering, Chinese master architect, Vice President and Chief Architect of China Architecture Design & Research Group, Standing Councilor of Architectural Society of China and Professor of Tianjin University. He once won the Liang Sicheng Architecture Prize and French Literature & Art Knight Medal

As a leading figure in the Chinese architectural circle, Cui Kai‘s career life is regarded as an example and benchmark for many young architects to learn from. As one of the first beneficiaries of the restoration of the national college entrance examination after the Cultural Revolution, he graduated with a master’s degree and started to work in a design institute in 1984. In 1997 when he was 40, he was promoted to the Chief Architect of China Architecture Design & Research Group. And, for quite a long period of time, he remained the youngest master engineering designer in China. In 2011, he became an Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering. His success lies in the many excellent architectural works created with his unremitting efforts, as well as in his down-to-earth attitude and extraordinary perseverance over the past 30 years.
