China’s mass modernization and urbanization effort has created an interesting living lab for students of architecture, landscape and urbanism. The juxtaposition of traditional and modern architecture, and the exciting yet challenging city growth offers students a unique opportunity to critically analyze the tension between deeply rooted culture, tradition, and unstoppable trends of globalization. Meanwhile, it allows students to develop comparative analysis to the Western counterparts. The China Study Abroad Program includes visits to Beijing, Shanghai, Najing, Suzhou, and Hong Kong. Students will be exposed to both historical and contemporary iconic buildings. To enrich the learning process, students of the China Study Abroad Program will also interface with a number of local host universities in the form of joint forums and lectures.
We are developing a program for China, if you are interested, please contact Hui Cai for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
