Two different design philosophies.
Yansong's work has been compared to that of Hadid. Zumthor's work to that of Kahn.
One is more a sculpture to be seen in the round. The other an aggregation of spaces and materials to be experienced.
One is more an architecture of the future, the other an architecture with almost primitive roots.
One will be more like Walt Disney Hall, the other more like the LA Cathedral.
