Visit from the Tongji University to Freiburg2015.04.10

Frey Architekten received a visit from the Tongji University in April 2015. The Shanghai University is one of the world renowned universities, with around 55,000 students. The Tongji University values and maintains the exchange of knowledge and culture between Germany and China. To this end, in 1998 a Chinese-German College (CDHK) was founded – a joint project with the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

Professor Li, Dean for architecture and urban development at the Tongji University, came on 4/10/2015 to visit the office of Frey Architekten. Frey Architekten organized guided tours through the neighborhoods of Freiburg-Vauban und Rieselfeld and the visit to Bugginger Strasse 50 (the first energy-renovated passive apartment building in the world) with the friendly support of the Freiburg Urban Development Authority. In addition, Wolfgang Frey and Professor Li had extensive discussions on sustainability matters, as well as possible future cooperation.
