Abstract

In addition to China’s state-owned ones, university-run design institutes
are unique phenomenon in China’s building industry. This chapter is intended
to examine the role of academic-architects in Chinese universities and their affiliated design institutes. The university-run design institutes were mobilized by the ideal of integrating research, production and teaching, which has long been emphasized for all academic institutions by the Chinese central government. Design institutes run by the universities excel in the society by their mental input from the faculty of design profession. Most significant architectural works and events are closely associated with the academic-architects and their university-run design institutes. Tongji University possesses a top architectural school in China. This chapter uses Tongji as a typical case to delineate the emergence, growth, chievements and challenges of university-run design institutes. The model of running architectural education and production in China may inspire the other educational institutions in the world.
