Initial outcomes included a fisherman’s school, precipitating population growth, and expanding the scope of the project to provide homes for newcomers as well as relocating locals. Xu’s training developed in an international context, having qualified with a Baccalaureate in Architecture from Tsinghua University, Beijing, and with a Master’s in Architecture and Urban Design from Harvard University. All of DnA’s work can be seen as experiments in hybrid economic formats that operate as exemplary projects to encourage other villages to interpret and imitate them.
