[photopress:beijingplan.jpg,full,alignright]For five weeks this summer, a group of 20 MIT graduate students in architecture, planning and real estate joined with a dozen graduate students from Beijing’s Tsinghua University to work together on issues of urban design and development in the context of China’s exceptional increase in real estate development.
The studio opened with a major exhibition at the Beijing Planning Exhibition Center near Tiananmen Square, commemorating the history of the studio and displaying 20 years of work on sites across the city.
The Beijing Studio is a joint program of the MIT School of Architecture and Planning, with participants from both architecture and planning, and the Tsinghua University School of Architecture. Funding is provided by the Paul Sun Endowment Fund, the Asian Cultural Council of New York/Geoffrey Yeh Foundation, MIT and Tsinghua University.
