From 16th July – 24th Jul. 2016, the world’s top architectural school – the Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA) cooperated with Urboso ltd to deliver a design event at Chengdu’s iBox Creative Park called Marking the City, which is part of the AA’s Global Visiting School.
Since founded in 1847, the AA School has renowned for its pioneering teaching method of experimental architectures. It is at the cutting edge of worldwide architecture, with more than 3000 registered members.
The teaching philosophy of AA school is to promote innovative application of advanced building materials and explore the possibility of applying eco-friendly materials to other industries that go beyond construction. Mr. Stewart Dodd, Professor Jason Griffiths and Mr. Joao Lemos, as the tutors of the activity, had made three visits to our production base. After rounds of communication with Urboso team, they accredited the quality of the eco-friendly plastic pipes produced by Urboso, and selected Urboso as the exclusive material supplier in the activity. Under the guidance of famous architecture tutors, students from different universities in Southwestern China, Australia, USA and the UK majoring in Architecture, art and design, explored the possibilities of adapting industrial plastic pipes to other fields.
The quality of Urboso’s product was highly praised by the tutors and students who participated in the activity. We also sent our engineers and technician team to give technical advice and training to the students. All students and tutors are unanimous in praising the expertise of Urboso team.
