The composition of Songzhuang town is consisted of traditional Hutong alley ways. Songzhuang town possesses the idyllic pastoral scene that artist yearns for, the individuality and privacy that comes hand-in-hand with traditional dwellings, relatively low rental fees and large communal space, making it one of the top destinations for people from all walks of life. Based on these characteristics of Songzhuang we look to break through the existing urbanization mode by building a whole new city whilst conserving parts of the villages that are still good and integrating modern elements into these villages.
