Beijing has four projects included in the winner list of the 2017 China Habitat Environment Prize announced by the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development of the People’s Republic of China recently.

Among them, the project of preserving the Dongsinan historical block by the public was awarded the 2017 China Habitat Environment Example Prize. As the only winner on the theme of preserving ancient city and building community, it also won the first prize for Beijing’s excellent urban and rural planning and design.

In 2012, the Chaoyangmen Subdistrict and Beijing Municipal Institute of City Planning and Design began the pilot project at the Dongsinan historical block to launch the material space-improving and cultural environment-reviving activities with mass participation and establish a self-governance mechanism for building the block together with residents.

Now after five years, the hutongs in the Dongsinan historical block have taken on an entirely new look from before. For example, at the Shijia and Neiwu community cultural life museum, the 700-square-meter courtyard has been divided into 10 themed areas for exhibiting various items, which creates a full cultural atmosphere at the courtyard. Mr. Zhang, a resident who was participating in a cultural activity at the courtyard, said, “There are many kinds of cultural activities at the Shijia and Neiwu community cultural life museum, and it has become a paradise for our culture lovers.”
