The American Institute of Architects’ Housing Knowledge Community is partnering with the Center for Leadership in Global Sustainability at Virginia Tech (CLiGS) and the Yunnan Sustainability Network to offer a professional development and service learning opportunity in southwestern China to members of the AIA. Through this 10-day program, we will explore the opportunities and challenges to conceptualize, communicate, and develop sustainable housing and communities. Our itinerary will take us from Beijing and Shanghai to several communities In Yunnan, China’s most diverse province, ethnically, biologically, and ecologically. There we will explore the interactivity between Yunnan’s natural and cultural landscape and the rapid growth of China’s economy.
