As the United States engages in a trade war with China, French-Chinese relations are proving more and more noteworthy for their contrasting approach to international trade. Having set three cooperative environmental goals—addressing issues in climate change, sustainable urban development, and water security—the two nations are establishing a ripe economic base for international collaboration and innovation.

A project launched in Hangzhou last month could soon reveal the architectural and technological implications of this strategic partnership. With energy-efficient microalgae exteriors and blockchain-monitored building systems, the FrenchDreamTowers, designed by XTU Architects, are a stunning expression of form and function that feel like a glimpse into the future.
