Hangzhou Dianzi University
With the guidance of Hangzhou Dianzi University Professor Wang Guofeng, this project addresses the current disparity of cultural infrastructure in the Xiasha sub-district in Hangzhou, China by comparing it to the Xihu district and Worcester, Massachusetts. Utilizing results from interviews and a survey conducted with residents of Xihu and Xiasha, the team discovered that key cultural facilities are unavailable in Xiasha and at least 40 minutes away by public transportation. From these findings, the team created a list which recommends that the sub-district of Xiasha establish new cultural infrastructure sites, and also refurbish certain existing facilities. Implementing these recommendations has the potential to raise the happiness and quality of life for people living in Xiasha.
