[Xiangmi Lake] Volunteer's Research Journal





This article showed the research results on the temporary architectures of food shops at Xiangmi Lake by a volunteer participating in the project initiated by Design Center. Based on field research on the lakeside environment and food streets,she found that accessibility to water scenery was limited and utilization of space was low along the lake on the north part of Hongli Road. The major causes to the problems were the wall along the lake which blocked entrance and the recreational facilities which were out of use and led to space waste. Research on food streets led to the conclusion that the spontaneously formed food shops were distinctive in style yet the sanitary condition ramained to be improved.
