Shuhei Aoyama

B.L.U.E

Shuhei Aoyama, the co-founder of B.L.U.E (Beijing Laboratory Urban Environment) Architecture Studio in 2014, is a Japanese architect based in Beijing, China. An emphasis on structure, materiality, and light can be seen in B.L.U.E.'s work, primarily in Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, and increasingly in other Chinese cities. Aoyama transformed a Beijing hutong into a home for 6, with the formerly cramped space becoming a sunlit modern loft space.
