Talking about intensity! On top of the non-stop intense tooling sessions and the conceptual mind bending in studio students and teaching staff are bombarded with eye-opening lectures and seminars by Yan Gao (dot-A), Brendon Carlin (AA), Kristof Crolla (LEAD) Rolando Rodriguez-Leal (Zaha Hadid Architects), Xu Feng (XWG), Chen Chen & Nicola Saladino (ReMix) and Xu Dongxin (Crystal). As the vivid debates bring the AA’s enthusiastic criticality to China, Beijing brings its unique position to the discussion table!
It's blistering cold, the sky is (somewhat) clear and spirits are as high as the many fireworks are shooting, here at the opening day of the AA Winter School in Beijing

As part of an excited team of tutors Brendon Carlin & Kristof Crolla kicked off their studio "5D - Multi-dimensional Urban Planning / Pluralistic Urban Scenography" in which 13 students will explore how urban proposals for mixed-use housing can be developed through multiple scenarios (5D) evolving over time (4D) in space (3D).
