China Project 10: Mountain Band-Aid

Project: ‘Industrialization and mining are destroying China’s natural settings, especially mountains, which are excavated to the point of destruction in man’s search for minerals. These processes don’t just devistate regions’ ecologies; they also displace whole populations of people, separating them from their homes and also their means of living, as many in these rural areas work as farmers. The “Mountain Band-Aid” project seeks to simultaneously restore the displaced Hmong mountain people to their homes and work as it restores the mountain ecology of the Yunnan mountain range.’ (http://www.evolo.us/competition/mountain-band-aid/)

Why I like it: Preserves the natural landscape while reviving the Hmong’s traditional way of life. Who wouldn’t want to live in a skyscraper built into a mountain?
