PROJECT SUMMARY

Sustainable planning for a rural community

Subsistence living conditions drive millions of China’s rural poor into the cities. Concurrently farming land is converted to new uses. Sustainable planning for a rural community is a pilot project in Beijing’s urban sprawl.

It demonstrates how much needs to be done to keep people in rural settings – and how much can be done. The urban plan improves logistics, public utilities and services while meeting stringent ecological and energy-saving targets for new buildings.
