Nantou Old Town Preservation and Regeneration
Located in the central area of Shenzhen, Nantou Old Town has a history over 1700 years and had served as the political, military, and economic center of the Shenzhen-Hong Kong region including Macau and Zhuhai in the past dynasties. In the past century, the exacerbation of urbanization in Shenzhen has resulted in a complex pattern of a historical town embedded within an urban village, which is again encircled by the modern city. Nantou of Shenzhen, as a symbiosis between historical town and contemporary urban village, bears two mutually impetuous propositions, which limit its own development.
URBANUS starts by rethinking the positioning of its development, emphasizes historical authenticity and layering of its inherited spatial culture, then proposes a gradual activation from microscale to larger clusters; It further promotes the development strategy of rejuvenating Nantou with cultural events, and tailors a six-point regeneration plan for the historical town. In 2017, taking the opportunity of Nantou being the main venue of the "Shenzhen-Hong Kong Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism \ Architecture", the concept of "Urban Curation" is adopted to intervene the regeneration of the historical town. By reshaping the cultural and spatial context of Nantou, it is to evoke the sense of belonging and community awareness of the local residents, ultimately in hope to provide an alternative strategy and prototype for the regeneration of Shenzhen's urban villages.
