Place Making and Rural Tourism in China

Wei (Windy) Zhao, PhD, AIA (Architecture)
Molly Briggs, PhD (Art & Design)
Suiwen (Sharon) Zou, PhD (Recreation, Sport, & Tourism)

This interdisciplinary course, cross-listed across multiple disciplines, will be co-taught by faculty from architecture, art & design, and recreation, sport, & tourism. Each course number entails different expectations and focuses within the broader theme of place making and rural tourism in China. Through collaborative research, planning, and design processes, students will develop coordinated architectural planning and designs, tourism development strategies, wayfinding plans, and place-making activities tailored to the specific needs of residents and visitors of Xihu Village in the city of Jingdezhen, China. Participating students will have the option to attend a week-long field trip to China with limited scholarships available from various sources. Grounded in community-engaged, human-centered design research processes, this hybrid studio-seminar course offers diverse, underrepresented, and global perspectives on community-engaged design processes in the global south to students at home and abroad.
