Open Call: 'Ruins·Rebirth' Dongjingyu Village Regeneration International Landscape Design Competition

Dongjingyu Village Regeneration International Landscape Design Competition

The Dongjingyu Village is at the Ji County, the only mountainous area in the Tianjin municipality. It is home to a cluster of vernacular stone dwellings of extraordinary design and layout, interspersed among grotesque rocks, primeval trees and rare plants. As a point of departure for Dongjingyu Village’s regeneration masterplan, this competition seeks to respond to the rural revival movement across China and explore the local culture and charm of the Village.
