[Guangzhou] UCL Bartlett China Academission 2017 – Urban Space Design Concepts Workshop



University College London (shortened as UCL), founded in London in UK, is a world-renowned university.  Its Bartlett School of Architecture is the biggest one of its kind in UK and ranks the 1st in EU and 2nd in the globe, released by QS in 2017. of We are delighted to announce that Bartlett academics will lead a delegation to China, including destinations as shown on the map.
The timing of this visit could not be at a more important time for China who are addressing the tensions between economic prosperity, heritage, environment and resources and health and welfare.
In addressing these tensions ‘value’ will be created. The role of the knowledge base to generate the evidence to help inform the development of more vibrant urban-rural places to live and work has never been more critical than now.
China’s strategic development programmes such as ‘Belt and Road’ and Xiongan have aspirations to construct modern world-class, green, sustainable, resilient and smart cities whilst preserving the ecology; enjoying blue skies; fresh air and good ‘sponge-city’ water management.
Economic prosperity in these new zones will benefit from the development of policies to support high-end innovative industries as new growth engines – but this will demand high-quality public services, infrastructure and transportation serviced by new urban management models.
UCL Bartlett’s academics will share their experience on how disciplines such as urban spatial master planning, new paradigm for real estate design, delivery and management; innovative financing mechanisms, digital innovation; public spaces and regeneration can create, retain and enhance value – and how to measure it.
Where time allows UCL academics will share with conference delegates Case Studies which used selected ‘tools’ as part of a rigorous and critical approach to help determine VALUE.
We sincerely invite you to join our workshop in Guangzhou on  26th Oct to meet the delegation and exchange ideas with each other.
