What can CEAC offer architects, urban planners and garden and landscape designers?

Architects, urban planners and garden and landscape designers are given an opportunity to conduct research, develop a project and expand their professional network.  The CEAC Board of Directors assists in establishing contact with the local urban planning, architecture and landscape design offices and the authorities in Xiamen and the province of Fujian.

The CEAC also stimulates a cultural and intellectual exchange between residents, local architects and students at the Architecture Department of Xiamen University.  Residents can be invited to give lectures or presentations about their work and guest seminars and workshops for students.

At the conclusion of their residence, architects are invited to present their research project at the Art Center. The CEAC can also help mediate presentation spots in other cities in China and, for those who like to travel, CEAC offers travel advice and assistance (reserving tickets, hotels, getting visas)

Based in the Netherlands, the European branch of the CEAC regularly presents the research results of CEAC residents at various locations to an interested audience.  In addition, the European branch of the CEAC strives to promote an exchange of knowledge and collaboration with fellow specialists and artists in other disciplines by organizing lectures, debates, films and video showings.
Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis.
