Quick project whilst in China


We met with students from Westminster University DS:13 and Guangzhou Arcademy of Fine Arts to discuss teaming up for entry to Solar Decathlon 2013.

A quick team project was conducted to analyse how Chinese tradition or vernacular could be coupled with digital or computational tools and techniques to produce a modern architecture rooted in Chinese tradition.
