John Lin (Hong Kong)

Keynote speaker – Landscape Australia Conference 2018

John Lin is an associate professor at the University of Hong Kong and co-founder of Rural Urban Framework (RUF), a research and design collaborative based at The University of Hong Kong.

In 2005 the Chinese government announced its plan to urbanize half of the country’s remaining 700 million rural citizens by 2030. At the same time, Joshua Bolchover and John Lin set up Rural Urban Framework (RUF), a research and design collaborative based at The University of Hong Kong. Structured as a non-profit organization providing design services to charities and NGOs working in China, RUF has built over 15 projects in diverse villages throughout China and Mongolia. The projects include schools, community centres, hospitals, village houses, bridges, and incremental planning strategies. As a result of this active engagement, RUF has been able to research the links between social, economic, political processes and the physical transformation of each village. The projects integrate local and traditional construction practices with contemporary technologies.
