Department of Architecture

Departments, schools and centres

Modern China presents a wealth of exciting opportunities for architecture students and researchers. Against the backdrop of the country’s fast-paced modernisation, the Department of Architecture engages with the challenges and contradictions of architecture in China in an open-minded and forward-thinking manner. Our students benefit from the experiences of our highly international academic staff, and seek answers to the questions facing both local and international architecture today.

As academics and architects we involve ourselves in real debates, challenge common perceptions and evaluate traditions. Our unique location in Suzhou allows in-depth explorations of the dynamics of urban life and designed spaces. Confronted with the city's past and engaged in its present, our students are guided to design the future.
