He Wei has been engaged in teaching, research and creation of architecture, urban and rural areas, art, lighting and other disciplines for a long time. The work emphasizes the dialectical relationship between architecture and region, environment and traditional style in the Oriental context, and critically introduces these elements into the design. In recent years, he has been deeply involved in the field of rural construction in China, emphasizing the social responsibility of architecture, and proposed a rural architectural design method based on holistic design, regional and local translation, public participation and artistic intervention, as well as contemporary communication means, which has been verified in practical cases.

His practice has been published worldwide and been honored to receive awards such as WA Chinese Architecture Award in 2014 and 2018, Blueprint Awards in 2018, International Architecture Awards 2020, Architizer A+ Awards in 2018 and 2020, The Art Directors Club Annual 99th Awards, etc.
