August 2012 - (re)iterate Dashila Hutong Workshop, Beijing

Rolando will be one of the instructors for the hutong workshop organised by Jordan Kanter. In the course of this 10 day workshop, students will explore new techniques for mapping, cataloguing and intervening in the processes of development of the Dashila area of Beijing. Working directly in the streets, alleys and buildings of this historic hutong district in central Beijing, they will undertake an in depth survey of both tangible and ephemeral elements that make up the social, economical and physical situation of the site. Using computational tools to visualize and simulate future scenarios within this ecological organization, students will seek opportunities to enhance existing networks and infrastructures, exploit collaborative synergies and produce unexpected programmatic affiliations to enhance the creative ecology and social identity of the Dashila area.
