|15-25 October 2013: Eight of our students are on a field trip to Tianjin, China. It's a large coastal city SE of Beijing. They have a tall building site in the new developing district (shown in the model, above), and have a small part of this to master plan. The project is a cultural exchange with Tianjin university whose students are also doing a tall building project on the same site.|
The Nottingham students have greater freedom with the brief, to pick a research agenda to add complexity to their tall building design.
Here is the total group at Tianjin.
Having done the hard work, the group found time to do a bit of tourism in Beijing before returning home on 25th October. The cost of the flights is sponsored by the Jason Pomeroy Studio, Singapore.
They all touched down safely in the UK on the evening of 25th October.
