《ABITARE 住》'Hutong/adaptation' | Guest-edited by MovingCities, 2013

In June 2013, ABITARE China magazine invited MovingCities to guest edit its summer issue on the topic of (re)Design Heritage – Strategies of Urban Renewal and the Chinese City. We took this opportunity to address one of the most urgent issues to discuss when dealing with the urban, architectural, cultural, social and economical development of the city of Beijing 北京: heritage, preservation, adaptive strategies and the hutong 胡同. Hence we came up with HUTONG /Adaptation as our unifying theme. Check this post for more background; read our Preface and TOC or order a copy of《Abitare》#34 [September 2013]. read more »

While our Portuguese posts on Peter Zumthor and Álvaro Siza Vieira keep on generating traffic, with 2012 Pritzker Prize winner Wang Shu we found a close runner-up. But we’re also pleased that our, incognito, Koolhaas-Simpsons scoop made it to the sixths place on Archinect’s Top 12 News Posts of 2012. MovingCities in 2012 was about cities, architecture and the creative industries in China. A selected flashback. read more »
