You are warmly invited to attend the final presentations of the joint Tsinghua-Stanford workshop, The Human City: Design for People, on Saturday, September 20 at 2:00 PM, at the Tsinghua University Academy of Art & Design (B413). Project teams will present their work in six topic areas, including food systems, residential energy, electric vehicles, bicycle livelihoods, land use, and cultural preservation.
Through this September workshop, two dozen students from Stanford University and Tsinghua University explored innovative ways to tackle urban challenges, while gaining new perspectives on humanistic city development. Participants represent a wide range of interdisciplinary backgrounds, including urban studies, information art and design, international relations, computer science, and civil and environmental engineering.
Guided by Deland Chan and Kevin Hsu of Stanford University, and Zhiyong Fu of Tsinghua University, multinational student teams engaged directly with Beijing as an urban laboratory for experiential learning, exploring strategies to enhance sustainability and improve the quality of life.
Workshop participants will also present their work at the Smart City Expo, part of Beijing Design Week, from September 25-30. For more information, please visit:
