Week 4 was spent exploring Hangzhou factories and local schools. On Monday, a bunch of us visited the Yamaha Music Factory. We got to see how they manufactured upright pianos, hybrid pianos as well as acoustic guitars. As a musician, it was indeed eye-opening to learn how the instruments we use are made from scratch.
We also visited the China Academy of Art in both 南山 and 象山. The exhibitions consisted of different genres of art and we got to learn more about what students learn in local art schools.
The exhibitions were really impressive too! The EPD students collaborated with renowned brands such as Adidas, Jeep and Porsche to design vehicles.
Here’s looking forward to our own theme projects!
