> the guardian quotes Moving Cities on Beijing’s Dashilar architecture & design blog by Oliver Wainwright > Designers use ‘urban acupuncture’ to revive Beijing’s historic hutongs  (Wednesday 2 October 2013) Beijing Design Week sees architects launch ‘micro-interventions’ in one of the capital’s oldest neighbourhoods. But are their good intentions having the right effect? (…)  “Bert de Muynck, a Belgian architect who has carried out extensive research on the Dashilar initiative with Mónica Carriço at the Moving Cities think-tank, has mixed feelings about the outcome so far. “It is a brave attempt to do something different after the failures of places like Qianmen,” he says. “People criticise those developments for creating twee stage-sets for tourists – but we have to be careful Dashilar is not just creating another kind of ‘authentic’ stage set for designers.”
