Is this Chinese satellite city the future of suburban sprawl?

According to the designer, compared to a typical development of a similar population, Great City is expected to use almost 50 percent less energy, 58 percent less water, and create 89 percent less landfill waste.

Of the 800 acre development, people will only work and live on 40 percent of the land area. The rest will be used for open space and agriculture.

The biggest problem will be whether everyone living in there will also work there, and vice versa.

North Qingdao Train Station and surroundings:

www.qdhaichuang.com

Huge Development Area with at least one Supertall (about 70 floors so should be 300 +)

Unfortunately I had no camera with me. There is also a sales center with a huge model, but it is currently being set up.

I will come again in a few weeks to take some pictures.

Cities seek sustainable growth
Updated: 2012-11-01 15:02
(Xinhua)

BEIJING - Zheng Chunxia, 37, still remembers the black "snowflakes" that flew out of the massive chimneys of the porcelain factory where her parents worked.

Zheng said she used to rub the "snowflakes" on her friend's face for fun, stopping only after their parents warned them that the black material was toxic.

In the 1980s, rapid industrialization turned Zheng's hometown of Jingdezhen, China's "porcelain capital," into a haze-shrouded city. Porcelain factories were built in the same areas as residential compounds, with large chimneys belching soot into the air.

The city consumed about 2 million tonnes of coal annually when porcelain production reached its peak in the 1980s, resulting in a discharge of 54 tonnes of hazardous particulate matter each month.

"A white shirt collar would turn gray within half a day," recalled Zhu Gangliu, deputy head of the city's environmental protection bureau.

Many of China's larger cities have experienced the same phenomenon. Although some have made efforts to move factories and other environmentally hazardous facilities into their outskirts, many cities are still contending with dangerous levels of air pollution.

Poor environments have not only sickened local residents, but also scared away potential investors. Reviving polluted cities has since become a significant problem in China's development.

The creation of a "culture of conservation" is expected to be on the agenda at the upcoming 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC).

In a July 23 speech given to provincial-level officials, Hu Jintao, general secretary of the CPC Central Committee, described the promotion of conservation as a "strategic mission that will involve fundamental changes in our mode of production and way of life."

Jingdezhen is a model for the change that the CPC seeks.

In 1995, the Jingdezhen municipal government moved to limit the city's pollution by renovating kilns, dismantling chimneys and introducing centralized heating.

Porcelain factories have been moved out of the city's downtown area to suburban industrial parks with pollution control facilities, Zhu said.

Natural gas has replaced coal as the city's primary fuel source. Although a few chimneys remain downtown as a reminder of the city's porcelain heritage, the rest have been demolished.

Zheng, who now works as a quality inspector at a porcelain plant, no longer worries about wearing white clothing when she leaves her home.

"They use natural gas to fire the kilns, just like cooking at home. It is clean and non-toxic," said Zheng.

China's government has long been blamed for developing the country's economy at the expense of its environment, a situation not unlike that of countries that have fully developed their economies.

Developed countries also suffered from pollution while industrializing and subsequently spent large amounts of money to restore their environments, said Gong Yi, deputy secretary-general of the Environment and Development Research Center under the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.

China is experiencing the same growing pains, Gong said.

Those pains may take some time to heal. As of June 2012, five of China's seven major rivers were polluted, while 33 out of 113 cities monitored by the Ministry of Environmental Protection did not meet national standards for air quality, according to statistics from the ministry.

Local residents in some areas have angrily spoken out, criticizing authorities for damaging the environment and endangering public health by approving new construction projects.

A massive protest was staged by the residents of the city of Shifang in southwest China's Sichuan province from July 1 to 3, with thousands of people demanding the local government halt the construction of a copper smelting plant that many feared would harm the city's water and air.

The local government announced on the morning of July 3 that construction on the plant would be stopped.

A similar protest occurred in the city of Qidong in East China's Jiangsu province on July 28, with thousands of angry residents taking to the streets to protest the construction of a water discharge plant that they believed posed an environmental risk.

Jiangnan, Nanjing finally gets its CBD area. Looks like they took some projects originally done for Jumeirah Gardens City in Dubai. should be another Adrian Smith skyscraper for the city. Would guess about 350 to 400 m.

Henn Architekten's Urban Planning Museum opens in Nantong with dynamic facade

Near the mouth of the Yangtze River lies the burgeoning industrial city of Nantong. With the location falling prey to harsh sunlight, the architects of the newly-opened Nantong Urban Planning Museum had to take a creative approach to ensure that the varied building users were shaded or illuminated enough for their different needs.

Whilst the distinguishing façade panels may seem an aesthetically attractive feature, they are highly functional and enable a controlled regulation of sunlight in fine increments. The main volume of the Museum is a cantilever which hangs over a glass pedestal.

Within this great space are the central exhibition space, offices and conference rooms whilst the special exhibition display areas, café and bookstore are confined to the glass base.

HENN Architekten explain of their design: “Its distinctive façade is composed of two layers: the inner which thermally seals the building envelope, and the outer, a reticulated metal structure with a gradient of varied panels. The façade’s diamond-shaped diagrid is comprised of seven different panels that allow for varying degrees of opening from 9%-60%.”

The exhibition spaces in the 16m floating form benefit from a reduced amount of sunlight which penetrates through small openings while the office areas are bathed in light from the maximum-level panels. The building was officially opened with a joyous ceremony in October 2012.
