CAUI Receives Grant for China Studio

Posted By: 

The Center for Architecture, Urbanism, and Infrastructure has received a three-year grant of $20,000 per year from the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS) to support the China Studio. The grant from PIIRS will be supplemented by matching funds from a previous donation given to support the Center’s activities by Rob Stewart, a Princeton alumnus. One of the Center’s longest-standing programs, the China Studio sends a group of advanced graduate students from the School of Architecture to Shanghai and Suzhou each fall to study the unique urban conditions, architecture, and landscape of the region. As a two-way, cross-cultural exchange, the studio is a consistent source of creativity for the School of Architecture, with students returning from China to share new design ideas and new ways of looking at 21st century cities and regions. With the grant from PIIRS, the China Studio program can continue its mission for the next three years, engaging Princeton students with global issues facing cities worldwide.
