From China to Austria, rural regions face similar challenges: the cores of the communities and centres of the villages are becoming increasingly dispersed, vacant buildings and a lack of jobs are destabilizing infrastructure, resulting in migration to the cities.

The exhibition ‘Rural Moves – The Songyang Story’ shows how precise architectural interventions were found in response to these challenges, and infrastructure was improved in the Songyang region. The exhibition opens with a dialogue between the cultures underlying concepts for rural space in China and in Austria.
