A video used for crowdfunding project about Beijing's last hutongs: igg.me/at/hutong/x/3362410
Hutongs are the traditional living quarters of Beijing. They were first constructed during Kublai Khans reign back in the 13th century. However, economical development and political decisions to transform Beijing into a “modern world city”, have resulted in the destruction of over 90 percent of the hutongs in just a few decades.
The hutongs of Beijing has an 800 year old history. They are now almost entirely gone. Please help us to document spread information about the last remaining, by making a photo book and a website.
Please consider donations to our project, or spread the links to friends and family! Thanks!
