Tomorrows rural land: Vitalizing Chinese rural idle homestead land through leisure agriculture industry.
The rapid urbanization process in China has caused the emergence of plenty idle rural homestead land (housing land), which constitutes a huge waste of land resources and brings about wicked problems, such as social segregation, environmental damage, rural-urban polarisation, and real estate bubbles. This project takes leisure agriculture as a promising development direction for a better use of this resource. It aims at an institutional and spatial framework that involves new conceptual principles adding ecology and landscape aspects to the current rural-urban dual model. It thus intends to offer a sustainable environment-rural-urban integration strategy and invigorate idle homestead land.
