Strengthening Identity and Sustainability by Site-specific Planning and Design, 6. bis 9. Oktober 2014, Peking University

Prof. Dr. Vanessa Miriam Carlow participates and lectures at the symposium „Urbanization and Locality: Strengthening Identity and Sustainability by Site-specific Planning and Design“ at Peking University. China is currently experiencing new patterns and speeds of urbanization that not only have impact on China, but may also affect the world at large. Striking a balance between locality, specificity and urbanization is a trend to be advocated for future developments. To explore the potentials of such process and trends forms the core objective for the symposium and consequent research endeavors.

The symposium is financed by the Sino-German Center for Research Promotion and part of a forthcoming Chinese-German research collaboration.
