China Design Now, curated by the V&A and currently on tour across the United States, explores the recent explosion of Chinese design and architecture, contextualizing the impact of rapid economic development on these disciplines in three cities: Beijing, Shanghai, and Shenzhen. OFFICE PDX invited three of Portland's design and architecture experts – Greg Stobbs (Nike), Doug Cook (Tinder) and Greg Mitchell (LRS Architects) – to discuss their experience working and creating in China. After the discussion, we caught up with Stobbs, Nike's retail design director (Asia + Emerging Markets), who has spent the last 15 years working as a designer/architect in China on a variety of retail and hospitality-related projects. Prior to Nike, Stobbs worked for Tonkin Architects in Hong Kong, and was also a store designer for Gap in San Francisco.
