Displaced Hutong
Dunbar, Eli A

2015, MARCH, University of Cincinnati, Design, Architecture, Art and Planning: Architecture.
The hutongs of Beijing have existed for centuries. A hutong is the street, lane, or alleyway located in Beijing’s old city center, comprising the circulation space between the grid-based courtyard houses known as Siheyuan. A hutong street or lane separates two parallel rows of Siheyuan. A hutong alleyway is the space between two individual Siheyuan. The hutongs are more than just circulation pathways for the residents and visitors of these old neighborhoods; they also act as the social binding element which allows for the residents to become neighbors.
