On May 5, 2018 students of the the Studio “Future of Living” at Tongji CAUP pinned the progress of their design work to the walls of the studio and showed how far they had developed their visions for collective living that is more than residential. Our guest reviewer was Steven YN Chen, of the Danish architecture firm Schmidt Hammer Lassen. A part-time lecturer at the Shanghai Study Center of Hongkong University as well, Steven proved to be highly critical yet very constructive and encouranging reviewer. With the mid-term review behind us, we are looking forward to the next big event in this studio, the visit of 12 German students from the Bochum University of Applied Sciences and their tutor Prof. Erhard An-He Kinzelbach, who are working with same design brief.  We thank Steven for his time and are looking forward to see him again at the final review!
