International Collaborative Design Studios
Our faculty and students are global citizens who aim to build bridges between cultures and make the world a better place. It is therefore the School’s vision to expand our design studios into an international programme, collaborating with academic partners worldwide to tackle issues and challenges facing global society today.
TU Graz, Austria
This joint design studio opened up perspectives on land reclamation and sustainable urban housing, developing resilient living concepts that addressed economic and social-political needs.
ETH Zurich, Switzerland
The joint studio focused on Guangdong’s abandoned industrial infrastructure and its potential for cultural redevelopment, investigating how complex geometry and digital fabrication technology can radically transform the way our built environment materialises today.
Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD), USA
A group of graduate students from Harvard and CUHK visited Shenzhen for a one-week field trip, researching the theme of industrial reuse in Shekou. They presented their design projects at Harvard subsequently.
National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan
The joint studio developed ideas to transform a Japanese colonial remnant in Hsinchu City facing redevelopment, providing a research-design platform for advancing the knowledge and public awareness of adaptive reuse in architecture.
