Research Stay in Chongqing


As part of the Learning Cities workshops conducted by Mercator Foundation, Wuppertal Institure and Chora Lab Berlin, I spent a month in 2016 in China, three weeks in Chongqing, and one in Beijing.

In international student project groups, we conducted research on urban historical neighborhoods in Chongqing and developed an urban design proposal for a sustainable and social waterfront in the Shan’Cheng’Xiang neighborhood of Chongqing. This was the result from a three-week research and design workshop at the architecture faculty of the University of Chongqing.
