The location of the workshop, Luoyi village, is a typical example of global rural-to-urban migration trends, and the resultant neglect of the rural villages and traditional lifestyles. As a growing global trend, and a particularly acute problem throughout China, the multidisciplinary workshop spanned several themes concerning the revitalisation of rural villages, involving projects of varying size and time-scale. Students conducted field research and interviews whilst in Luoyi, and combined their different experiences in order to propose some development strategies for the village.
The final result of the Luoyi village workshop, a booklet, is a collation of the experiences and complementary proposals for ensuring Luoyi village’s prosperity into the future. To read the work online, please click the link below.
