Raleigh campsite is residing remotely in a mountain village of the ethnic minority group of 'Buyi and ’Miao', a non-profit youth development campsite combined with a rural community center. The design implements a symbiosis concept in its intervention with the site, employing lightweight assembly and local craft in construction. Mountain landscapes, rural customs and the experience of growing-up are bridged, to provide an interactive place for both urban and rural children to grow in a natural experience and public welfare practice. The project attracted donations from enterprise by design proposal.
