Traveling Seminar

Three Cities Architecture Studio in Asia

In this studio and seminar, you will live in 3 dense and vibrant Asian cities—Tokyo, Shanghai, and Hong Kong. Through visiting prominent urban attractions as well as experiencing daily life, you will construct urban observations through two lenses—the macro (through literature and lectures on data and facts, policies and codes, etc.) and the micro (through your own eyes). Then you’ll choose an urban issue, such as food, housing, transportation or hydrology, and build a narrative form of your focused research within the three cities. (9 credits; ARC 407/408/608/609 and ARC 500)
