Rural Urban Framework (RUF) is the research and design collaborative between Joshua Bolchover and John Lin. The objective of our work is to engage in the rural-urban transformation of China and Mongolia through built projects, research, exhibitions and writing. We operate as a non-for-profit and collaborate with charities, private donors, Chinese Governmental Bureaus, and Universities. The work is conducted within the Faculty of Architecture at The University of Hong Kong.
