  • The Cities in Evolution series explores the architecture of cities that are experiencing profound, prolonged change. It was a natural choice to start the series with China, perhaps the country that has seen the deepest changes in economic and architectural terms over the last two decades. In cities all over the country areas that were once rural are becoming urban, Maoist-era tenement blocks are being demolished to make way for new structures, and ambitious new projects are springing up in city centers to showcase the newly acquired wealth of the country’s companies and businesspeople. The architectural experience of each city in the collection; Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Shenzen, Beijing, Shanghai and Nanjing, is here documented textually and photographically to demonstrate the effect of prolonged economic growth on China’s streets and neighborhoods.
