    A Copy of the Hallstatt Village in China!

    We all know China is a master nation of duplication and has often been questioned about breach of copyrights regarding western inventions turned into products via China for the world market.

    I never thought I would ever read about the Chinese wanting to copy an entire picturesque village in the Salzkammergut of Ostmark otherwise more well known internationally as Austria. Hallstatt is being duplicated and copied house for house and rebuilt in China as a tourist attraction.. The Hallstatter locals are obviously not happy about it..

    All I can say is it will never be as good as the original Austrian version.

    And the Chinese prove that their main ideology is "Copy&Paste" once more.

    Why the Chinese would go to so much effort is beyond me. It's strange that such a culturally distinct nation (mainly Han) would feel the need to.

    Well, you can perhaps replicate such things as buildings but you can never copy the people

    Hallstatt in Austria will always be the original and best!

    Well, the "west" maybe should have thought about that before we exported all the machines to China for "cheap production costs".

    The Olympia center in Pyeongchang (South Korea) will look exactly like an alpine village too, there are many towns in China/Asia that have been built after European towns already, and when are we going to cry about all the Brauhauses and Oktoberfests around the world (as a side note, I find this much more worrying because it is displayed as "german" culture, and then tourists come here (outside Bavaria) and want a fuckn Bavarian Brauhaus...? and even worse, get one...), none of them is in Bavaria.

    Seriously, while I understand the whining about copyright stealing (with the limitation mentioned above, we enabled them to this reproduction in the first place with our greed), a village doesnt really have a "copyright" attached to it.

    They love European architecture, they love many things from Europe, and they dont copy "western" culture, but European (even if only superficial mainly) culture. They are a much lesser threat to European culture than the "west" is. Sorry to say, but this whining about their "stealing obsession" is the wrong thing to whine about, really.

    I am sorry to read this and can sympathise with the Austrians. The Chinese have copied a small number of English landmarks before, too (clocktowers and phone boxes etc.).

    If there's anything I can do to relax the minds of the Austrian people, it is this:

    Do you REALLY think the Chinese can copy this?



    No, I didn't think so, either! Germanic architecture, build quality and tradition cannot be surpassed.

    This is nothing really outrageous, have you seen any Oriental style building in European countries? Of course you have. An entire village is a tad excessive, but I guess they just appreciate good architecture
    Of course, it will be kitsch as it is not the real thing, but it's just to roll in the tourists to see little a bit of Europe. I'd rather that then they adopt the degenerate elements of the contemporary west like the Japanese do in abundance.

    It is reported that after months of measuring, study and photography at Hallstatt, an alpine hamlet of stunning beauty, Chinese architects are now busy making a replica of the Austrian village in Guangdong Province. Minmetals Land Ltd, a real estate development company owned by a State-run mining giant, started construction in April.

    This is not the first time that a Western town's Chinese copy has caused controversy. In 2006, Thames Town in suburban Shanghai, a copy of Lyme Regis in Dorset, peeved the residents of the original English town. In 2005, overseas media outlets were aghast at the recreation of Dorchester, another country town in Dorset, in Southwest China's Sichuan Province.

    In recent years, replicating a Western town has become a real trend for Chinese real estate projects. Wolonghu Real Estate Development Ltd, a Nanjing-based company, focuses on replicating American towns in the Yangtze Delta area and labels itself as the "China factory manufacturing American-style towns." The company's head, together with many other developers, envisions solid market demand for such projects, and believes they will help upgrade the Chinese way of life.

    However, roughly planting a fake European-style building or compound in the middle of a Chinese city shows zero aesthetic appreciation. Evidence of this is shown by those who, when copying the US Capitol when building city halls across China, believe it to be the White House.

    Even if replicating an Austrian town in China does appeal to the market or tourists, it does not justify the copycat approach. Chinese architects can use various methods to borrow from Western architectural flavor – but low-down plagiarism should definitely be ruled out.

    Chinese architects are apparently seeking to obliterate the fundamental line between "studying" and "copying." This is not a problem solely concerning Chinese architecture. Such piracy just adds one more item to the long list of imitations in this copycat capital of the world.

    It is true that innovation always begins with imitation, but it is becomes dangerous to let people become numb toward endless copies.

    Even worse is that society seems fine with the omnipresence of copycats. Few people here care whether copycat real estate projects are legal or not, and few boycott them even after these projects are exposed as disgraceful replications. Plagiarism is bad, and everyone knows that. However, Chinese society does not reject plagiarism as instinctively as other countries.

    The Chinese always stress building and enhancing the country's soft power. The very first step is to be culturally confident. Laziness fostered by piracy will only stifle, not propel, our innovation.

    Well, you can be lucky that Sigurd is on vacation because you´d receive a proper answer on this from both of us. Bavarian culture IS German culture...we could argue about whether Bavarian culture is the epitome of German culture or not, but that would be just a rhetorical question because both of us know the obvious answer!
