On September 2, the Awarding & Exhibition Opening Ceremony of the “2023 Fair of Making” was held at a farm in Jinpoluo Village, Xiwengzhuang Town, Miyun District. The event was a collaboration between Beijing University of Civil Engineering and Architecture (BUCEA) and the Bureau of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of Miyun District. As a kickoff event for the “Popular Science Support Project” by the Architectural Society of China and the “Design Hop” project of Beijing Design Week, the event brought together eight participating teams from seven universities in Beijing. Focusing on the theme “Inside and Outside”, the teams completed six design projects after spending one and a half months on design and five days on on-site construction.

The opening ceremony was attended by ZHANG Dayu, President of the host university BUCEA; MA Chao, Deputy District Mayor of Miyun District People’s Government; LI Zhongguo, Deputy General Manager of Beijing Institute of Architectural Design; CHEN Hongbing, Vice President of BUCEA; HU Yue, National Engineering Survey and Design Master and a professor at BUCEA; BAI Dapeng, Deputy Director of the Bureau of Agriculture and Rural Affairs of Miyun District; WANG Yijiang, Party Secretary of Jinpoluo Village in Xiwengzhuang Town, as well as the deans, faculty, and students from architectural colleges of the seven participating universities.

MA Chao, Deputy District Mayor of Miyun District People’s Government, mentioned in his speech that the launching of the “Fair of Making” was a valuable endeavor that injected the cultural creativity of university faculty and students into the rural regions in Miyun, and incorporated spatial and architectural art into village environments, marking the new beginning of collaboration of rural areas, universities, and the artistic community.

ZHANG Dayu, President of BUCEA, pointed out in his speech that the “Fair of Making”, as one of the significant popular science education initiatives undertaken by BUCEA as a popular science base under the Architectural Society of China, had received strong support from the Beijing Design Week Organizing Committee and BUCEA’s partner universities in Beijing. BUCEA has been on good terms with Miyun District, which in turn, enables the university to fully display its creativity and technology and contribute its wisdom and strength to rural revitalization and construction.
