GENERATION, CHINATOWN

 

Reading New York Urbanism, MSAUD program, Columbia GSAPP | Summer, 2016

Professor: Cassim C Shepard, Nans Voron

Collaborative Work: Shuman Wu, Tianyang Xie

 

Chinatown, an enclave neighborhood in Manhattan, was built by the old generation of Chinese immigrants and is now raising a new generation. This generation is also experiencing the struggle between keeping the old tradition and fitting in the new society like their parents did. Today Chinatown is changing. Old generation shows their concerns about the change, while the young are catering the change optimistically. The two generations, under the influence of different culture, education and environment, hold different attitudes toward the future of the neighborhood.
