Line 13 redux | Review

On June 19, 2009, MovingCities was invited by Shannon Bassett to review the work produced by five of her students from the School of Architecture and Community Design, University of South Florida in Tampa, at the crossboundaries studio in Beijing. Three and half weeks ahead of our ‘Line 13 redux‘ workshop, we gathered with Professor Ann Bergren (B.A.S.E. / UCLA), Juliane Demel (CAUPD) and Michelle Lin (FRAME magazine China), to give the students a critic review of their work produced so far.

The five students were organized in 3 groups:

  1. Stephanie Herring (Design 3) + Brennen Huller (Independent Design);
  2. Maryam Younes (Design C) + Chablis Applewhite (Design C);
  3. Carlos Gil (Design Thesis).

The first two teams made preliminary design proposals on the Line 13 crossing of Longze subway-station over the Badaling expressway (as a continuation of the case study proposed by ‘Line 13 Redux’ workshop), and the later had the possibility of shifting focus and choose a new site for his 1st semester thesis analysis, entitled ‘Urban-Eco-Filter: Introducing New Lungs to the City’ (emphasis at Beijing’s CBD main vehicular crossing).
