Studio-X Beijing


New year marks a new beginning for Studio-X Beijing.

After five very successful years at Studio-X Beijing, we are excited to announce plans for the next phase of GSAPP’s engagement in Asia under the leadership of Dean Amale Andraos. 

Building on the energy of Studio-X, GSAPP will expand regionally to Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Shanghai, and other cities, by joining forces with other institutions and schools of architecture and by engaging Columbia University’s broad network of alumni.  As a new regional model, and as a result of increasing and productive collaborations with Columbia’s Global Centers, Studio-X Beijing has been transitioned to the Columbia Global Centers | East Asia central offices, and programs will be developed in close partnership with Columbia faculty.  As the director of Asia Megacities Lab, Jeffrey Johnson will build on the Studio-X Beijing platform developed over the past five years, and will lead GSAPP’s initiatives across Asia.
