September 2014, Beijing, China


The Dutch Program for 2014 Beijing Design Week was curated and executed by The Pin Projects. As one of the Dutch events at the 2014 Beijing Design Week, “Toward 2050: Developing a Sino-Dutch Approach for Sustainable Urbanization” was first established by the Dutch Creative Industries Fund in July 2013. The program explored the contribution that Dutch planning methods could make to resolving various challenges confronted by Chinese

metropolitan areas in the course of rapid urbanization. The participants explored this issue by organizing a Sino-Dutch Research by Design Work Wee  focusing on specific spatial planning issues, in order to identify a sustainable urban development plan formulated by Chinese and Dutch participants.
