Zhengyin Community is located in the Xindu District, northeast of Chengdu. As a result of rapid urbanization, numbers of farmers have been resettled in row-flats a decade ago, forming a typical urban village. In recent years, research institutions and two universities have been built around the community, which brings new population and opportunities to the community. The project presented the local government an alternative for redeveloping besides the more common demolishing and reconstructing way by minimal construction and renovation to reactivate the vitality of the community.
