Directed by Professors Didier Rebois (Paris Val-de-Seine School of Architecture) and Pan Haixiao (University of Tongji in Shanghai), this competition is based around cooperation between three European schools (Paris-Val de Seine School of Architecture in France, the Berlage Institute in Rotterdam and the Architecture School of the Technological University of Berlin) and three Chinese schools (the Architecture School of Tongji University in Shanghai, the Architecture School of Huazhong University of Technology in Wuhan and the Architecture School of the Huanan University of Technology in Guangzhou).
Since 2001, IVM has been working in the field in China to contribute to ideas on mobility in Chinese cities and to facilitate international debate. Having organised urban workshops and an international symposium in several Chinese cities, the Institute is continuing to stimulate ideas in the field through this international competition for architecture students.
