Small Groups

To join a SEA Small Group activity, you must be a SEA member. SEA is always looking for new group ideas and leaders (SEA members) for these groups. Please contact with your suggestions or questions. 

Architecture Study Group


This is an inquisitive and informal group who meet at 10am on the second Tuesday of each month. Each group member commits, alone or with another member, to research and lead at least one walk per year. The group focuses on Shanghai architecture/history/culture and does so in the context of interpretive walks lasting about two hours and ending with a casual lunch. No architecture degree or background is required, just a strong interest in Shanghai architecture combined with a love of walking. For more information please contact us at
