a good reference for the redevlopment and conservation project------Foshan Guangdong

2009 Honor Awards for Regional and Urban Design
Foshan Donghuali Master Plan
This master plan exemplifies how private development can be harnessed to preserve historic areas and promote a city’s unique identity. As unremitting high-rise development threatens the architectural heritage of Foshan’s Old Town, this master plan points the way towards enhanced livability. Sensitively scaled districts encompass a range of building heights to encourage transit development and use.
in China, lots of this kind of old town, the villagers even don't know their villages' history and the importance of the conservatoin of these cultural legacy.
