Awards 

Moise H. + Lois G. Goldstein Travel Fellowship, Grant

Recipient of Moise H. & Lois G. Goldstein Travel Fellowship for the study of Urban Public Space in Rome, Italy and Nanjing, China

Although both Rome and Nanjing are the products of a complex historical narrative, the particulars of their respective histories and resultant urban morphologies are inherently different. The functional archetypes according to which each city was developed reveal divergent attitudes towards the creation and occupation of public space. A city in the midst of rapid development, Nanjing is evolving in order to balance its strong historical context with contemporary social ideals and economic pressures. Exacerbated by globalization and explosive population growth, the city is in the process of reinterpreting the existing urban fabric in order to increase quality of life without compromising its cultural identity. Lacking the cohesive network of public spaces that is evident in cities such as Rome, the city of Nanjing, as well as the surrounding Jiangsu province, struggles to redefine city life in a historic capital.
