Keywords: architecture, documentation

Accompanying the urban development of China, many cities have lost and forgotten their aged communities where most are located in city centres or historical areas. In the city of Changsha, located in the central part of China, there are many historical communities facing regeneration due to the lack of building quality, living conditions and worsening working environments.

This project documents, through photography, the parts of the city of Changsha that are left behind or indeed incorporated into a new urban fabric that subsumes the cities historical heritage.
