(May 27-29, 2016)
Human Cities @ China was successfully held by Stanford and Tsinghua University from May 27 to 29. On the first day, Deland Chan and Kevin Hsu from Stanford talked about four pillars of sustainable cities: environmental quality, economic vitality, social equity and cultural heritage; and the human cities approaches: smart urbanization, public involvement, and Interdisciplinary cooperation. They also briefed participants on the activities in the past and now.
We invited key experts to share their insights on the opportunities and challenges of urban development in China and they offered substantial amount of relevant materials.
Led by Deland and Kavin, the participants formed teams and settled on their focus of the fieldwork. They visited three neighborhoods in Beijing: Tieshu Byway, Qinglong Hutong, and Fatou to find out problems facing the city.
For Example, two teams in Qinglong Hutong found that the Hutong neighborhood lacked public space and its traditional lifestyle was in need of protection, and then worked out solutions accordingly, that is “public space design to accommodate needs of inhabitants and creators” and “function layout plan of hutong”.
