Peoples Republic of China



Zu Beginn des Wintersemesters haben wir 5 verschiedene Städte in China besucht. Das Hauptziel dieser Reise lag in der Dokumentation der einzigartigen Entwicklung des Landes zur Zeit. Zudem wurden Grossprojekte als vorbereitendes Semester-research analysiert und dokumentiert. Da für alle die Kultur und das Land neu und besonders faszinierend war, sind die Eindrücke nicht nur durch die Architektur sondern durch alle Bereiche des Lebens besonders geprägt. Zudem konnte der Eindruck noch durch geführte Touren und Gespräche mit u.a. Thomas Polster (Herzog & deMeuron, Beijing), Patrick Cranley (Shanghai), Gary Chang (Edge Design, HongKong) und Frank Yu (Gravitypartnership, HongKong) vertieft werden.
