Following the completion of the New Soldiers Field Ben set up a full time design studio in Shanghai. Working with a group of multi-lingual designers from all over the world. The BenWood STUDIOSHANGHAI has helped transform the urban landscape of modern China. Current projects include the 2 billion US$ North Bund project, major mixed-use complexes in Chongqing, Wuhan, Hangzhou and three large residential communities: Cambridge WaterTown, Cambridge Forest, and Westwood Green (totalling over 2500 hundred homes). Over the past three years the Studio has been working with the Shanghai American School to complete their Puxi Campus. New buildings include a Black Box Theatre, Central Administration Complex, an Aquatic Center and the Center for the Performing Arts.
The Studio recently completed master plans for resort communities in Lijiang and Shangrila, both in Yunnan Province. A high-rise complex in Danang, Vietnam, is the Studio's most recent commission.
In the Fall of 2005 Delphine Yip, a long time associate, became Ben's partner. Delphine is a graduate of Harvard School of Design and is responsible for many of the Studio's most notable projects.
