From March to August 2006 four offices, representing some of the most promising young Danish architects, have worked together with professors, PhD and postgraduate students from four of the most prestigious Chinese Universities. The project teams, each consisting of one Danish office and one Chinese university, have developed proposals for sustainable urban development in the four Chinese cities of Beijing, Chongqing, Shanghai and Xi’an. They have been advised by and received consultancy services from the Danish engineering company Carl Bro and they have held workshops in both China (twice) and in Denmark (once). In addition, the Chinese professors have lectured at the two schools of architecture in Denmark and a Danish professor has lectured at the four Chinese universities.
