When we are tired of overlooking the city, we have lost in the rapid urbanization development. Everyone begin to desire to return to the original state of the city, return to the origin of human life in the city. In the urban renewal and reconstruction, traditional architecture and heritage activation and utilization, a way of life and memories in the past often continues in the renovation and transformation of space, perhaps this is a possibility of being back to the city the origin. We found 6 traditional old buildings in the old town of Guangzhou Based on their different living space structure transformation, curing and transformation story, we set up a public platform or performance art heritage conservation plan -. "Fan Wu Qi". In our exhibition, all the process of the building renovation is open, we hope that the urban renewal and architectural activation using, this serious and complex topic, can be presented to the public in a more relaxed attitude and multiple perspectives way. Perhaps this is the beginning of coming back home. Space production bottom-up In the field of urban renewal and architectural renovation, top-down mandatory change just a dimension. And considering the desire and the demand of users, with a kind of between professional and non-professional modification of process on the surrounding life space, is often the most dynamic and creative action. The space production, which is from bottom to top and derived from life, is a potential power of the city change. We hope that the exhibition is in a state between professional and public, seeks a possibility of the bottom-up production mechanism in urban renewal and architectural renovation, by holding a series of workshops which ask people to make something physically.
