Workshop | day 3 of 5
Last Thursday [May 29 2008] ‘Line13 Superlinearity’-workshop visited China´s leading landscape architectural office: TURENSCAPE Design Institute. Alejandro Cabrera Camprubi invited the students to have their in-work findings/presentations and offered an insight into some of the strategies and design principles underlying TURENSCAPE´s projects. We took Line13, stopping at Shangdi station [Zhongguancun District] and, with a diverse range of transportation means available, headed towards the office.
Between May 27 and May 31 MovingCities is invited by Adrian Blackwell, Assistant Professor at Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design | University of Toronto to give a design workshop in Beijing, hosted by Theatre in Motion’s studio. We will be looking closer, through a series of field-trips and programmatic interventions, into the Beijing’s peri-urban condition along the Northern section of Line13.
