My study abroad program is in “Ye Lang Valley”, Gui Yang(City), Gui Zhou(State), China
The program is a design & build collaboration between University of Washington Seattle, Rutgers University, Gui Zhou Normal Univeristy , as well as our site sponsor ” Ye Lang Valley” and its founder Mr. Song Pei Lun
The Project lasts 1 month from June 20th to July 20th and it is led by Professor Daniel Winterbottom from the department of Landscape Architecture in Univeristy of Washington .
I haven’t been home for two years, therefore I am very excited to visit my family while meeting some new friends who we are going to collaborate with. My biggest fear for this project is the communication during the design process. Since I used to design with people I know in the school, even we have an argument about the design, we would all take a step back to avoid “fighting”. It is my first time to design with people I am not familiar with, and it would be a challenge.
Because China has an internet control about foreign information, I will not be able to blog in the country. Everything will be blogged when I get back to the US.
