Li Hao received his Bachelor of Architecture from CAFA. He found One Take Architects in 2016, an innovative design firm which engaged in practices of architecture, art, landscape, planning and product design.
One Take Architects is devoted to discover the unrevealing relationship and various possibilities in existing context, strive to achieve subtle, emotional spaces that can have multiple readings, create architecture that is logical, sustainable, and that speaks of its time.
They start small and stay away from challenging local building industry with advanced materials and techniques, deal with what is possible.
In order to create the new perception and experience which are exclusive to each project, One Take Architects designed a series of activating ephemeral architectures, usually small and beautiful, but capable of leveraging something really big. They really want to create a sense of material authenticity and delight, and human-scale quality, variety, variability, and intricacy. They belive that we can improve the world through recognition, consideration and creation.
In 2017, Li Hao started a public welfare project ‘Program SPARK’, which provide free art education for left-behind children in china. He try to provoke and inspire people with their non-profit architecture & art education project. The aim of Program SPARK is not to cultivate future architects, but to use architecture as a medium to perceive the real world, to guide and help children grow, and to let children return to the real world through physical participation, thus bringing their interests back to the real world.
