Title: Locality and Power Relation Behind China's Rural Physical Infrastructure: Knowledge and Network for a Sustainable Nu River Valley

The mismatches of rural physical infrastructure between that the local governments provide and that the residents need in Nu River Valley in Yunnan illustrate the influences of rural locality and power relations on the changes of rural space. The subjectivity and rationality of rural residents are the key driving force to uphold, inherit, and transform vernacular architecture. Scustanable rejuvenation on the knowledge and the networks that support the local physical infrastructure are also discussed.
