Field trip investigation 3: Qingcheng Mountain and Dujiangyan Irrigation Project.


The earthquake Which happened on May 12th, 2008 largely effected people’s life in Sichuan province and brought vicious damage to many scenic spots such as the Qingcheng Mountain. In the reconstruction after the disaster, a rational plan and design of the scenic spots should be done to strengthen the capacity to overcome varied kinds of disasters and safeguard the original ecology and ancient architecture complex.


The impact of the Wenchuan earthquake on Qingcheng Mountain.

The reconstruction after this earthquake disaster.

Interview for the local people.
