We study sharing practices and we design shared spaces.
Sponsored by Ng Teng Fong Charitable Foundation (Hong Kong), NUS-Tsinghua Design Research Initiative for Sharing Cities (NT-DRISC) was jointly initiated by the Department of Architecture, National University of Singapore and the School of Architecture, Tsinghua University. The aim is to bring together scholars and students from the two top Asian architecture schools as well as experts and professionals having the same interests, exploring emerging space sharing practices and new dedicated typologies of shared spaces in the city.
With multi-disciplinary urban research expertise and excellence in design, we investigate on the spatial attributes of sharing practices and the economics, institutions, governance, and ethics of space sharing; develop insights on the conditions that the built environment of the city imposes on sharing practices and the transformation of urban spaces that sharing activities enable; and develop innovative design solutions that can encourage and promote meaningful sharing activities.
