Description - Remaking Chinese Urban Form by Duanfang Lu

This book charts the evolution of Chinese urban built environments. Following the socialist revolution of 1949, China's architects and planners attempted to remodel urban settlements according to modern neighbourhood design and planning principles. However, gigantic social upheaval left these attempts unsuccessful. The result was a divided landscape: a modern functional urban world of largely self-contained entities integrating workplace, housing, and social services, strictly separated from an underdeveloped rural world. Against this background the book explores questions of Chinese modernity, nation building, spatial injustice and urban-rural conflict with insights drawn from urban studies, environmental design history, urban studies, and critical theory.
