dc.description.abstractNowadays, a large number of rural villages exist in Chinese major cities such as Beijing and Guangzhou. Called Chengzhongcun (urban village), they are regarded as Chinese slums, which has been an obstacle to the urban development in China. The current method—the demolition-redevelopment method that is employed by the government to resolve the issues of Chengzhongcun—is unsustainable. This thesis explores the employment of a kind of new method, green community design methods, in resolving the issues of Chengzhongcun. Based on literature reviews about Chengzhongcun and green community design methods, three case studies, and a site visit, this thesis develops a redevelopment scenario for a typical Chinese Chengzhongcun, Huashiying Village in Beijing, to resolve its issues in the aspect of environment. The results suggest that green community design methods could be an effective way to redevelop Chinese urban villages and are much better than the current redevelopment method that is employed by the government.
