Face au développement de l’urbanisation, de nombreux villages dans la ville de Canton sont en cours de démolition depuis 2010. Il s’agit d’une disparition radicale et d’un ravage patrimonial architectural unique au monde. Dans les années à venir, ce changement de l’espace urbain, entre construction et destruction,représente un traumatisme important, dont la première victime est la population chinoise.
