With courtyard Hutongs (narrow alleys) of Dashilan, Beijing as the object, the research is about the urban organic renewal of historical and cultural neighborhoods in Beijing through re-creating “scenarios” rather than “landscapes” with designs of buildings, the environment and communal facilities that feature the strategy of “minor circulation and slight design”. The project takes further CAF Arch10 Studio’s teaching research “integrated design of buildings/ interior space based on city research”. It introduces simulated and actual construction that focus on structural construction materials and explores the teaching of interior design within the framework of architectural education in schools of fine arts. With design that serves people’s livelihood and public interests in mind, the project strives to be part of wider social renovations through replicating and iterating initial models and seeks to win wider recognition in the society by getting across its philosophies and practices through exhibitions.
