Culture as InfrastructureShenzhen / Hong Kong
The project departed from observation on how Shenzhen/Hong Kong Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture has been engaged with different forms of urban regeneration in these two cities tackling issues like the urban villages and the industrial heritages. The research intends to unveil the potential of such events to act as stimulus for urban social movement in a Chinese context. Based on a spatio-policy study of the specific sites, the project further seeks to propose an infrastructural mode of cultural production which could sustain an incremental urban regeneration process while maintaining the diversity and resilience of the local community.
