Program Introduction

CitylinX Future City Architecture

Architecture is among the top 10 popular majors for international applicants. The earliest existing architectural book, 'Ten Books on Architecture' by Vitruvius, defined the elements of architecture as having characteristics of Utilitas, Firmitas, and Venustas, aligning with the pursuit of both art and science. In modern times, architecture integrates with the rapid changes in industrial civilization and societal culture in modern cities. This prompts architects to transcend the concepts of flat forms and spatial locations, considering aspects from nature, economy, humanities, policies, etc. Cities have become the most intriguing subjects. ASDAN China, in collaboration with the CitylinX, through on-site analysis of internationally acclaimed design programs, guides to integrate their knowledge and innovative applications.
