With the rapid city development, economic growth as the pull factors pulling residents from the rural communities to the city. Depopulation and aging population of the rural communities become an irreversible destruction to the rural communities. The problem intensified with the further growth of the city and until the city development reach a saturation point. The imbalance city development harm both cities and rural communities.
A new system for the relationship between cities and rural communities to be established, Kintsugi of the flawed city, to repair the relationship between rural communities and urban cities and break the barriers between the people living in cities and rural communities. Filling the cracks of the cities with rural communities, the cities are illuminated with the essence of rural communities, in terms of the slow-paced lifestyle, natural environment and the fresh production of agricultural products, etc. Buffer zones formed the connections between the intrusion of rural communities and cities.
