Back from China

I had a packed five weeks in Hangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Suzhou, and Ningbo

Two new posts on my experience in China and how it came into the workshop I taught at the China Academy of Art can be found at , “Something out of nothing; sense out of nonsense & Finding your way. . .” can be found here and “Workshop at China Academy of Art” can be found here. The students who were part of this workshop are currently continuing this work in developing proposals for social housing in China. Jiang Weihua, a CAA faculty who taught this workshop with me, is continuing with these students and is working on a book of this work.

    Professor John Godfrey Stoddart,

    Thank you so much for your comment. How exciting to hear from you. I will email you. Yes, my father is alive at 97 and living in Warsaw.

    I would love to hear more about your work in NYC with H & A and then in Rio de Janeiro.

    All the best,
    Kyna Leski

    Dear Professor Kyna
    I worked with your Father (in the Time-Life Period) and much appreciated his character. Could you let me have his e.mail in Europe. Then, in July 1957 I left for Rio de Janeiro where I was a partner with Roberto Burle Marx. Actually I live in Caracas, Venezuela. The tropical vegetation seduces, but the political scene is pure chaos and very disturbing, as one tries to equate those two extremes!
    With All Bets Wishes for the New Year
