since 2009 MADarchitects organized the travel fellowship to support talented chinese students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to travel abroad. the vetting process to become a summer travel fellow involves a written proposal and work sample that speaks to the specificity and importance of travel as a lifelong study method for designers and architects. each of this year’s recipients showed an intuitive understanding of the meaning of travel: that first-hand experience of a place is essential to comprehending its full significance. to date, 20 students have traveled to countries including greece, egypt, italy, switzerland, japan, germany and the united states. this summer 5 more will have this invaluable opportunity, and we look forward to their reports upon their return.
