STATEMENT

 

Gangxia village is located in the center of Futian district in Shenzhen, existing as the only urban village in Futian CBD. Since the 1980s, lots of extraneous people flooded into Shenzhen to seek better development. Villagers gained constant income from them by turning their farmland and original houses into rental houses.

However, without enough supervision and proper guidance of government, villagers built plenty of buildings with extremely high density and most of which were even built illegally for earning more money. So even though urban village provides a relatively low living cost for extraneous population, various safety loopholes in the urban village will always be a threat to dwellers. Therefore, we need to solve problems in the village and in the mean time preserve a sense of history, creating a socially vibrant new heart of Futian.
