Lanzhou - People's Republic of China

Huanying Nimen Lai Lanzhou | Welcome to Lanzhou


some cute little mini-pix:

Lanzhou is the capital city of Gansu Province, lying on the upper reaches of the Huang He, Yellow River.

It used to be an oasis and a stopping place on the old Silk Road. Nowadays, it's developed into a major transport and industrial center.

Perhaps a paragraph from Peter Fleming's News From Tartary, 1936 will present you a side of old Lanzhou: "The streets of Lanchow are romantic. The faces of the Muslims - very influential, here as in sian, thought they form only ten percent of the population - are swarthy and fierce and almost hawk-like; most of them wear white caps or turbans. Occasionally you see a Turki from Sinkiang, a bearded, booted figure in a long chaperon, with features so Aryan and UN-Mongoloid that he might almost have from the Caucasus."

Population: 1.4 million
People: Han, Hui, Tibetan, Uygur, Mongolian, Kazak
Coldest Months: January temperature as low as - 10C
Hottest Months: July and August, temperature as high as 35C
Annual Precipitation: 30-800 millimeters
Sandstorm: April and May
By Air: Lanzhou can be reached by air from HK and 25 Chinese cities
By Train: Lanzhou is 36 hours away from Urumqi, 15 hours away from Xi'an and 15 hours away from Jiayuguan.

i love this city. the people are really cool and it has the dubious distiction of being the most polluted city in the world. 8

Compare to other China's main cities, Lanzhou has a better and nice skyline, its highrises' shape more to boxes and simplier

the aim of our creations is the art of space .... the essence of architecture

Large skyline, but boring skyline. They need a dominant tower to take over.

Not bad at all, (nice plaza), but the tallests are too spread on the city, so it doesn't look dense.(I mean density with height)
