Hang Lung Seminar - Awareness of Home and Country and Preference of Home Ownership Affecting China 's Urbanization
Introduction: Chinese history on the formation of the sense of home and country, the lack of city-state sense of pride, the process of urbanization is bound to choose bigger and stronger cities. With a strong national identity, the Chinese also have a strong preference for home ownership, whether from the wealth reserve or investment point of view, the house is an unconscious subconscious choice. This is in fact the challenge of a big city to control real estate market from its cultural origin. In future, this origin will continue to further promote the big cities (groups) as the core of China's urbanization process!

“When I joined Tsinghua, I couldn't hide my excitement about the huge campus that we are going to be part with. Moreover, such size will result in to meeting so many outstanding students in all over mainland china.”
“I really enjoy what this degree is giving me, the courses we are studying allows us to build solid foundations to the construction industry in China and internationally.”
“Coming to China I could have never guessed that I would be working with (and learning from) people from the nations of Iraq, India, Greece, Indonesia, Russia and Australia. While I expected my studies to be focused on international construction and project management, I have also been privileged to learn firsthand what it means to be international. This is something that is difficult to learn only from class and really requires the unconventional setting provided in this program. ”
