Design Seminar in Chongqing
A seminar for designers was held October 28th in the mountain city of Chongqing. The venue is arguably one of the most attractive glulam buildings in China. The large impressive clubhouse, built by the same company that built the Hebei Research Center Demo building, is located on a golf course. The glulam is made with Douglas Fir and the decoration is mainly Western Red Cedar. This event was co-hosted with the Canadian Consulate Trade Office in Chongqing and was attended by 35 designers from local firms. The key note speaker was Professor Xiong from Tongji University. Her goal was to inspire the audience to want to learn more about wood design. She accomplished this with help from the beautiful setting.
