Emerging Typologies in the City Region

Esther Lorenz + Shiqiao Li

This research project led by Shiqiao Li and Esther Lorenz identifies, documents, and analyses emerging architectural and urban typologies in two of China’s most dynamic city-regions, the Yangtze River Delta and the Pearl River Delta. Architecture and urbanism in China present rare opportunities to observe mutations of the city in response to contemporary world political and economic structures, as they take place. In collaboration with Southeast University Nanjing. Book publication forthcoming.
