Hutong – with the Wind and Rain

Hutong has become an important symbol for Beijing since the Yuan Dynasty.
After experiencing “Rains” and “Winds” – “historical witnesses” – the social functions and the value of Hutong have now been changed. Undressing the current structure of Hutong helps the development and the rebirth of the community. The project observes the Hutongs from non-visuals levels, named “Air”, “Water” and “Sound”. This would lead to a product, created through the infusion of the collected abstracted information and the new design philosophy. The work will thus unveil the possibilities of renewal, in the current social background.
