This year, eight students from UIC Barcelona, accompanied by lecturer Marta García-Orte, will join eight young Chinese students and architects in the workshop “First International Summer Design Camp of East Mount Huangshan: Renovation of the Educated Youth Cultural Park in Shanghai Mount Huangshan Tea Farm”. The project will be based in Huangshan, a prefectural city 500 kilometres west of Shanghai (China).

This year’s task will consist of proposing ways to convert a former tea plantation into a youth hostel and to renovate the old main building.

The workshop has been co-coordinated by Dr Carmen Mendoza, assistant director for International Relations and lecturer in the ESARQ - School of Architecture at UIC Barcelona, and architect Lingfeng Tong, a partner in the company Shanghai Bambuspace Design and head of the Focus on the Reality research group at Southeast University - SEU (Nanjing, China), and sponsored by the company Shanghai Bright Food Group.
