MetadataShow full item record
This thesis critiques recent urban village development in China, UNESCO’s historic urban landscape (HUL) approach, as well as intangible cultural heritage preservation guidelines. The question being researched is: Using Whampoa Village as a case study, in what ways do we sustainably reconnect urban villages' new development and heritage conservation via intangible cultural heritage preservation and the historic urban landscape approach? This study selects a typical village, Whampoa Village in Guangzhou, southern China, as the model for research and proposing a design and programming. This study will utilize descriptive strategies, interpretive strategies, projective design, and evaluation to understand multifaceted HUL approaches and intangible cultural heritage guidelines and apply them to the real urban village, Whampoa Village.
