After five full days of fieldwork, sketching and discussions, Go West presented together with a team of experts suggestions on the future of the Shantou Shan Nan area to the full board of the Shantou Planning Bureau. The advice focused on specific areas such as water, transport and community building.

The Shan Nan area in Shantou is a unique rural-urban location with a lot of potential. Qualities lie in characteristic villages in combination with an extensive water system. However, polluting small industries, poorly maintained villages and a lack of planning strategies currently threat the future of the area. Go West’s contribution was characterized by knowledge of the Chinese culture and urbanization, and the architecture of the villages. In the upcoming report we will further develop and elaborate on this vision.
