This exhibition showcases student work from three global studios to China, Greece, and Argentina. The Made for China studio was held in collaboration with UC Berkeley and the Tianjin Urban Planning and Design Institute, and explores urban ecological rule sets tested via a series of new urban typologies that link the fragmented fabric of Tianjin into a sustainable and vital urban landscape.

Hydra Cities investigated the hyper-dense Mediterranean urbanism of Athens by exploring the city and specifically its coastline as a laboratory to produce a series of Port Machines: operative and infrastructural devices, mobile and vehicular tactics, ecological and catalytic landscapes, and independent or networked strategies for a city in crisis.

The Argentina studio, Buenos Aires: Designing the Southern River Edge, developed proposals for a stretch of the old, abandoned port that links two crucial areas of the city, La Boca and Puerto Madero, which is the focus of present long-term urban planning.
