Canadian architect living in China hailed as 'guiding light' in the pursuit of healthier buildings
from Globe and Mail
When Raefer Wallis graduated from university nearly two decades ago, Quebec was hardly the best place on Earth for a new architect. In the grip of a recession, things were slow. Mr. Wallis began to scout for the busiest place he could find. On Jan. 3, 2002, he landed in Shanghai, a city in the grip of the construction burst that fashioned the concrete-and-glass underpinnings of China's emergence as a rising superpower, with its cities erecting some of the planet's most audacious buildings.
