Rural Memory and Rural Development
MetadataShow full item record
In recent years, the Chinese government has been promoting the infrastructure construction of rural China. However, most of the rural construction still uses the same set of methods of urban development and planning and ignores its own inherent special qualities; due to China’s rapid urbanization, many agricultural workers went to the city to work. Rural China is gradually losing its spirituality, vitality and culture. This thesis reviews the growth system of the Chinese countryside itself while emphasizing that rural development needs to inject collective memory to meet the requirements of local culture and customs. Based on a comprehensive understanding of the current economic, social, and political conditions in rural China, strategies are proposed to revitalize the village and create some economic stimulus. The primary goals of this project are to restore local identity to the village and create vibrant rural space.
