Project Summary

Maximize the Minimum in China

Baitasi urban regeneration

The project offers a set of strategies for the regeneration of the Baitasi historic neighborhood in the west downtown district of Beijing. New low-rise, courtyard housing will be added within the built fabric via pilot programs to increase densification without high-rise construction.

The proposed scheme empowers local stakeholders and vulnerable on-site residents to upgrade infrastructure and public services.
