History

Since its opening as both a boutique hotel and a semi-architectural museum in October, 2002, the Commune has become a must-visit place in China and received over 200,000 visitors across the world. The Commune is a private collection of contemporary architecture designed by 12 Asian architects. It was exhibited a the 2002 Biennale di Venezia. A special prize to an individual patron of architectural works was awarded to Ms Zhang Xin, the mastermind and the investor of the project for her “bold personal initiative which emphasizes the role of 12 Asian architects in building privately-owned houses in a definitely contemporary manner.” The exhibited project model, made of wood and cardboard, has been collected by the Centre Pompidou, Paris, as its first permanent collection from China. The management of the commune was taken over by Kempinski Hotels & Resorts in August, 2005, and the Commune was then renamed “Commune by the Great Wall Kempinski”.
