In the China Room senior and junior researchers from the DAD and DIST departments of the Politecnico di Torino find a space to work together in the fields of architecture and urban studies related to Chinese urbanization processes and its global influence and impacts. We are characterized by the multidisciplinary approach of our research activities, as well by our open stance towards international collaborations.
China Room is an interdisciplinary research group made up of scholars in the fields of architecture, urbanism, and geography, who study the impact of Global China and Chinese urbanization processes worldwide.
China Room also fosters collaboration with institutions and universities to share knowledge and provide mutual understanding on urban and architectural practices.
