Daniel Wu's architectural design earns RIBA nod

12 Jan – It seems that Daniel Wu hasn't lost his talent in architecture, as it was revealed that his design has earned a nod from the Royal Institute of British Architects.

As reported on Mingpao, the actor, an architecture grad himself, recently announced the good news on Instagram, saying, "This has been a great year for me getting back to design roots! [...] one of the buildings we built for our reality show has been nominated for a Royal Institute of British Architects award for 2018!"

"Guess I should think about going back to being a designer?," he added, jokingly.

The design in question is the Mulan Weichang Visitor Centre, a Mongolian yurt-inspired building located in Hebei, Inner Mongolia. Daniel, as well as architect Zhang Hai'ao were listed as the chief designers for the building that they did as part of a Chinese reality show called "Dream House".

This is not the first time Daniel was recognised for his designs. In November last year, the actor's self-built Datsun 510 that he called The Tanto finished in the top 10 at the SEMA car show.
