Abstract

This interview is centered on the practice of earth architecture in rural West China, starting from introducing the post-earthquake reconstruction project in Guangming Village, Yunnan Province, as an outstanding example of the practice of the “One University, One Village” Rural Sustainable Development Assistance Program. Li Wan, the interviewee, explains the differences of design consideration and the difficulties in practicing earth architecture throughout China, while giving her prospect on its future application. Through a further introduction on the operation and project procedure of the Program by Wan and her team, the interviewee addresses that architects should take their responsibilities on solving social issues, with a hope that, through their site-based efforts, the Program could provide a global paradigm to similar earth architecture practices in other regions, rousing designers’ awareness of localization.
