Urbanism Architecture Bi-City Biennial

In China’s Urban Villages processes of informal urbanization have produced urban typologies with densities over 70% and thus with no space for green. Chinese Urban Villages, with their crowded multistory buildings and irregular narrow streets, can be found also in the centre of greater metropolises and are not regulated by centralized urban planning. Formally housing the poor and transient populations of city-newcomers, they are today becoming the home of the young urban creative classes.
In Shenzhen Urban Villages with their narrow alleys occupied by cars, a strategy to improve climate should aim at integrating green into the extremely dense existing building fabric.

EXHIBITION
16-22 December 2017, 10.00-20.00, @ UABB 2017, Hong Kong/Shenzhen, P.R. China
