The Handshake 302 Village Hack Residency

Chicago, Shenzhen, and the Experience of Assimilation

(p.125) 7 The Handshake 302 Village Hack Residency
The City in China

Through a comparison of how assimilation and shying (adaptation) have functioned as values in Chicago and Shenzhen, respectively this paper explores what it has meant for these two cities to self-identify as destination cities that owe their morphology and ethos to immigrants and migrants. The argument is developed through a case study of the Handshake 302 Village Hack Residency. Located in one of Shenzhen’s most iconic urban villages, the Handshake 302 project aims to draw attention to ongoing demolition and redevelopment of these arrival spaces.
