Urban development in the eyes of village people

Land can be traded in the market, build skyscrapers and shopping malls; it can also be utilized for farming and ranching. Going home could be back to your small and condensed dwelling or returning to a village, where people are bonded through the land. Work could simply be a way to make a living. Beyond making money, we could also grow food with our own hands, decide on what to grow and how much to grow. People can live a more autonomous life. Besides extensive demolition and construction, development could also be sustainable, satisfying the needs of our society without sacrificing the natural environment of the future generations. Let’s explore urban development from another perspective in Monday.COME.
