The Chinese metropolis has developed into the world’s most successful urban scheme. Combining bottom-up energy with top-down force, it pushes cities and their inhabitants towards progress, fast-forward.

China’s megacities are efficient, with well-functioning infrastructures, top-notch public transport, proper housing, steady economic growth, a low crime rate, an attractive climate for foreign investors, and a glitzy skyline to boot.

Can this metropolis be the blueprint for cities worldwide?

With contributions by architects, academics, artists and activists, this powerful book reveals the current condition of the (Chinese) megacity and its shift from prosperity to progress.

Architect Daan Roggeveen is the co-founder of MORE Architecture. With Michiel Hulshof, he wrote the acclaimed book How the City Moved to Mr Sun.

With contributions by:Esther da Costa Meyer, Ying Zhou, Steven Y.N. Chen, Adrian Blackwell, David Gianotten, Justin D. Stern, Jonathan Woetzel, Max Cohen de Lara & David Mulder van der Vegt, Jeffrey Johnson, Liu Yuyang, Ou Ning, Cruz Garcia & Nathalie Frankowski, Frances Arnold and Eric Tabuchi
