It is that time of year again, makeLab is @Large. This year however we have a crew back at home lead by Natalie Haddad in Southfield carrying on. Pandush Gaqi and I are now in China working with Prof. Paul Wang, Prof. Jin Feng and a multinational group of students and faculty. This year’s workshop is exploring the complexities of Shanghai. Interchange [city] is the title and the starting point for our designs. Look for postings soon showing our initial ideas.
