Summer 2017 Participant
While there is definitely a language barrier, the country is not as intimidating as one might think.

Summer 2017 Participant
Meeting with faculty and students from the local universities. I enjoyed the cultural exchange of not just architectural ideas but also cultural ones.

Summer 2019 Participant
It's hard to choose a favorite part of this program because each day was so full of new and incredible experiences. We got to experience, not only the architecture, but also the art, food, and amazing culture of China in a way that felt so personal despite only being there for 21 days. Hui did such an excellent job guiding us the whole time and giving us access to every new experience she could.
