The Changing Physical, Economic, Social and Environmental Conditions of a Global Metropolis
This comprehensive study of Shanghai’s profound urban transformation presents the bold new opportunity for architecture and urbanism that Shanghai represents. Immersed in a deep physical transformation with the upcoming 2010 World Expo, Shanghai is reconsidering relationships within the city and surrounding neighborhoods. Shanghai transforming examines this complex transformation through history, natural and artificial resources, economy, society, and public perception. With illustrations, texts, maps, and photos, this is a rich resource for understanding Shanghai’s past and future, through a transformation which is highly unique for speed, scale, and politics.
