Reimagining Material, weaving the old and new in a Chinese city

Urban Planning Task Force (ISoCarp-NBPI, Ningbo China)

International Day for Monuments and Sites 2018

We were working on the Xinmalu Historic District, in a 8 million peopled coastal city south of Shanghai. Here was a marvel that cradled the connection of the land and marine silk routes.
