2014 Sustainable Housing China Delegation

The AIA Housing Knowledge Community invites applications for membership in a delegation that will travel within China from May 19-28, 2014 to investigate the potential of establishing an ongoing educational and professional exchange with the Yunnan Sustainability Network, Dali University’s new school of architecture and the Center for Leadership in Global Sustainability.

This is an important opportunity to be part of designing the Housing KC’s engagement in sustainability initiatives in the region and to learn about traditional and contemporary housing in Yunnan.  Participants will be asked to participate in analyzing options for engagement, writing a trip report and/or providing technical assistance to locally initiated projects.

It is the intent of the Housing KC to include as diverse a group of participants as possible, including participation by members at all stages of their careers and practitioners with various areas of professional and volunteer focus.

Delegates will be responsible for their own expenses including travel to China (arriving in Beijing and leaving from Shanghai) as well as a fee of $2950. for in country expenses (air, ground transportation, hotel, and two meals per day).

Interested participants should send a brief statement describing your interest in the program and a resume to housing@aia.org by February 8, 2014.

More information, including a program summary and schedule of events, is now available via the links to the right. Questions be addressed to Kathy Dorgan, AIA at info@kdorgan.net.
