Other Villages

From May to July 2007, I took part in the Beijing Architectural Studio Enterprise, where I studied the ongoing transformation of Beijing's peri-urban periphery with Adrian Blackwell, a professor at the University of Toronto Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design. In collaboration with Evan Moses, I produced a presentation and manuscript entitled Other Villages, excerpts from which are shown below, which concentrated on the particular confluence of forces in the village of Cui Ge Zhuang.

The full manuscript will be published in a forthcoming book by Tsinghua University Press.
