Adapting Villages Workshop 2019
Date & Time06.05.2019 07.05.2019
LocationAIT Building, CUHK
Rural villages are changing at an unprecedented rate. Today, the notion of “rural condition” is rife with preconceived ideas that have little in common with everyday country life. Adapting Villages Workshop 2019 is interested in exploring “actual” rural conditions with real-world examples of villages, understanding how and why they transform, as well as how they adapt and calibrate.
The workshop is structured over two days. The first day features 12 international academics and professionals who will present positions based on first-hand experience. Each presentation will fall into one of these three categories: Heritage/Modernization, Economics/Sustainability, and Community/Society. The second day will see each guest speaker collaborate with a team of 4 registered students, establishing a position for the future of rural villages through the production of a book chapter. Each chapter will be assembled into a final “Adapting Villages” book that will be printed and exhibited in one day.
Adapting Villages Workshop 2019 serves as a platform for students and professionals to collaborate, exchange ideas and debate what is happening to rural villages around the world today, establishing a design thinking strategy for how villages can adapt in the future.
