Old residential district outside the ancient city of Nanjing is facing severe problem ofgoing to be replaced by new commercial street. However, it is a significant part which represents culture and history. How can we preserve it? My group mate and I choose a certain part of the whole area and our design strategy is trying to preserve their living pattern, meanwhile, inspire new experience. So we define this area to four different types based on the level of intimacy and treat with specific methods. Moreover, by introducing green, we try to bring new life into this traditional block.
