This intensive interdisciplinary studio is open to architecture, landscape, interior, urban design and city planning students. Each year, the studio will take place in different cities in South, Southeast and East Asia and address a variety of themes including heritage, livability, re-development, regeneration, social justice and sustainability.

 Each city will offer a particular set of research, analysis and design challenges that demands full participation from the students. Based on the specific project site, students will be required to examine governmental policies, social and cultural factors, and the urban fabric to diagnose the site’s strengths and weaknesses and propose design interventions to improve the targeted built environment.
