Beijing Summer Workshop: Peri-urban expansion

This summer, six GSAPP students participated in a joint international workshop with China Lab, The Central Academy of Fine Arts and Chinese University Hong Kong. The twenty-student workshop focused its research on South Beijing, historically an underdeveloped region of the city that will soon be rapidly transformed into a densely-urbanized link with the city of Tianjin. By using South Beijing as a case study, the workshop proposed critical alternatives to the current trend of peri-urban expansion in China.
