We are finalizing details for the September studio! Join a unique experience learning, thinking, and doing that includes:
Practice need-finding and building empathy for multiple urban stakeholders. Utilize observational methods from planning and architecture firms, anthropology and product design. Conduct video interviews of city experts, defined as both practitioners and those with lived experiences.
Conduct on-site observations in Beijing: measuring, analyzing, and observing public life and spaces. Collaborate with multinational teams of students from China and the United States.
Practice brainstorming, creativity, and generating out-of-the-box ideas. Come up with novel metrics to describe and measure the urban indicators that you deem important.
