Aedas establishes innovation fund for architecture students at Tsinghua University, China

Aedas, has announced the setting up of the Aedas-Tsinghua Innovation Fund for the School of Architecture of Tsinghua University, one of the most prestigious universities in Beijing, China.

The fund is specifically designated towards awarding outstanding architecture students and supporting innovation and research. During this and next school years, 20 scholarships will be given to well-rounded year three and four students who incorporate global elements into their design works. The fund will also be used to finance research, competitions and other valuable causes.

“Innovation and creativity are two important values at Aedas,” explained Keith Griffiths, Chairman of Aedas. “As architects we constantly look to push the boundaries of what is possible in every project that we undertake. We value inspired and independently minded people who are passionate about design and want to excel.”

He also delivered a lecture “A New Urban Fabric: Porosity, Connectivity and Density” at the School to introduce his vision of city hubs that house more flexible and pedestrian-friendly structures; whereas Aedas’ Global Board Director Dr. Andy Wen gave another lecture “Inno-culturiage” about combining innovation, culture and heritage in every design.
