Architectural Acupuncture: How Design and Innovation Are Saving China’s Villages—and America’s Cities, too

April 14 @ 8:00 pm

Free

How can design and innovation bring life back to an ailing community? It’s a global challenge. Join us as XU Tiantian, one of China’s most innovative architects, presents inspiring projects in Zhejiang’s countryside and shares notes with Joel Mills of the American Institute of Architects about how great design can make a difference. In the U.S., urban neighborhoods have suffered as the middle class has moved to the suburbs. But in China, ancient rural villages are crumbling as farmers flock to the new, glistening cities. A rural revitalization movement is beginning to tackle these problems, and architecture is playing a key role.
