“Village in City - Migrant Workers and the Civic City”, Workshop with GAFA

 

In the ‘Guangzhou - Village in City’ Exhibition student projects propose civic programmes for the migrant worker population of the Tianhe Cun village in Guangzhou, China. These dense pockets of crooked allies in a sea of faceless speculative mass dwelling and office towers form the precarious habitat of China’s migrant worker population.
