Clemson University, Ain Shams University of Egypt and Huazhong Agricultural University of China are partnering to address some of today’s most pressing environmental and cultural issues through design. While the universities have participated in joint design projects in the past, leaders from the three institutions came together on Clemson’s campus today to formalize and advance their work together through the creation of the World Design Studio. This semester, participating students from each university will research how design can deter the implications of rising sea levels in Charleston, South Carolina.
