Shanghai Xian Dai Architectural Design Group visits RB office

Professional architects from Xian Dai Architectural Design Group in China are visiting the University of Oregon’s School of Architecture and Allied Arts for 10 weeks of intensive study in sustainable architecture.

Six award-winning architects from the group visited the Rowell Brokaw offices on a recent Wednesday morning. The conversation quickly got lively as designers from both firms talked about their projects and shared their design experiences.

This marks the second year during which 10 professionals from the Shanghai-based firm have come to UO for continuing education in their profession. The visit is not only significant for furthering their careers, but the exchange program also bolsters the university’s top-ranked standing in sustainable design education.
