Urban Villages in Shenzhen has been supporting the less affluent communities for several decades since the Reform and Opening Up, thus supplying the city with the essential human capital. This new model by Wancun believes that a clear delegation of power and a sustainable business model will leads to the balance between public interest, urban vision and commercial success. From different groups, such balance can be viewed differently. As an interpretation of both lifestyle and occupational changes imminent to more than one resident group, we discovered a common type of cargo rack. We intend it to offer an inviting stroll, a gaze at the identical racks, an arrival at a film that also captures the meandering voices of different residents, and eventually to the projection of percentages, figures behind key concerns raised by different interviewees when discussing Model X and the changes to expect. The uncertainty connecting all parts of the project is in fact itself a way of understanding and reviewing – starting from experience and perception, across the walk from representation to abstraction, there will perhaps be a moment when the rich possibilities of renewing an urban village can be truly grasped.
