    Bridges in Shanghai and Winter Quarter

    My studio this quarter will be focusing on the Lupu bridge in Shanghai that connects land on each side of the Huangpu River. This land is the site for the Shanghai World Expo in 2010.

    A primary focus of the studio will look at how the bridge can facilitate an effective integration with the city that will improve connectivity and public life after the expo has come and gone. We'll also be collaborating with an undergraduate studio doing a similar waterfront project in Berlin. Together, we will put together a website that will contrast each studios work side by side.

    The Shanghai Studio is being taught by:
    Nicole Huber
    Wyn Bielaska
    The pair has been quite dynamic thus far and should prove to make for an interesting/exciting quarter.

    Other courses that I'm taking this quarter include a seminar taught by Michael Pyatok on low income housing, another seminar taught by Nicole Huber on Urban Design Theory, and a digital fabrication course taught by Kimo Griggs.
