LUCITOPIA RURAL DESIGN CHALLENGE

The Lucitopia Rural Design Challenge 2018 is an international student design competition in the Qingliangshan National Forest Park, Zixi County, Jiangxi Province, China. Designers gathered together from around the globe to design a new form of rural town and community, based on the organic unification of environment, production, and living, in a remote, beautiful, and unspoilt corner of China.

The aim is to stem rural depopulation through cross-cultural collaborative design, whilst promoting a new, environmentally friendly way of life and production. Our Dutch team, consisting of Anna Pelgrim, Jeremy Raider, and Ella Hebendanz won third place with our app that aims to give local tourists a reason to stay in the area, we call it Seek.
