IR 2019 - Tours
China – New Realities
The tours accompanying this year’s IR conference are a chance to explore how much design has changed Shanghai. The city has become a laboratory not only for super-tall buildings, but also historic preservation, as well as entire districts that have been redeveloped into arts & cultural hubs. We encourage you to join us touring these exciting neighborhoods as we explore the new realities of practicing architecture in China.
