Through in-depth investigations and research of Pingyao Ancient City and the rural areas, the Workshop puts forward solutions and innovative planning and design ideas and finally serves as a high-end research platform for the long-term research of, planning and guiding the heritage conservation and development in Pingyao.

The basic operational principle of the Workshop is to organize various working groups among international and national social organizations, universities, scientific research and design institutes and the experts, volunteers and enthusiasts to conduct multidisciplinary and comprehensive studies on the basis of the urban and rural heritage in Pingyao. In this way, the Workshop will become a sustained platform and a think tank to study, design and guide the urban and rural construction as well as the conservation and reuse of cultural heritage in Pingyao. It is also aimed to make use of the Workshop as a platform to share advanced experience in heritage conservation and economic development around the globe and to organize a series of events such as international conferences, cultural heritage exhibitions, innovative design contests and the International Exchange Week to increase the international visibility of Pingyao and to promote the scientific conservation and sustainable development of the heritage city.

The theme of the year is: Heritage Conservation Going Public. The Exchange Week of the Workshop this year will be held from September 2nd to September 8th as  part of the Pingyao International Heritage Festival. The Week provides an occasion for the working groups of the Workshop to display and discuss the outcomes and achievements of their work. It will become another important event with international influence, together with the Pingyao International Photography Festival and Pingyao Film Festival, to exhibit and present the cultural pride and local character of the town.
