Georgia Tech and Tongji University will be working together in a joint laboratory of Ecological Urban Design taking place in both Atlanta and Shanghai to investigate the transformation of China’s Chongming Island into a sustainable ecological urban area. The studio group will assess social and historical contexts, political atmosphere, and local environmental conditions in its intervention-oriented approach to addressing novel research questions and nurturing knowledge. Urban design, engineering, and city planning will unite to combine cutting edge skills and ideas on the frontier of the urbanizing world.
