Itīs sad to see so much of the old architecture in Chinese cities have been torned down.

I think these are pretty cool. London 70s, London 2006(?). This view will change even more over the next 4 years.

Lanzhou,a small undeveloped city in northwest china,also witnessed a tremendous change.The sad thing is it lost its unique city wall along the Yellow River.

Those Amsterdam pictures are awesome! Amsterdam already has a lot of water, but it used to have a lot more! Never knew that!

Shenzhen fishing village 1985, population 25,000





Shenzhen 2007, population 14 million, the fastest urban growth ever:



BY 1996 there were 237 buildings of more than 18 stories











There are currently 347 highrises now, (of which 34 are over 150m, and a further 14 skyscrapers are under construction)










The city is not just highrises, in its latest makeover it now has huge showpiece projects (from the Museum of
Contemporary Art to the new Stock Exchange), sports stadia, parks, a metro, media centres, universities, museums, galleries,
vast public libraries, exhibition centres, upmarket ubermalls, theme parks, even artist colonised warehouse districts, alongside
urban tribes, myriad gay bars, minorities districts, student villages, and edgy fashionable neighbourhoods. Almost overnight it has
morphed from a gritty 90s boomtown to a tertiary city.

Museum of Contemporary Art

City Hall

Festivals


Art District



Fairy Lake park



It runs design festivals, marathons, art auctions, major sporting events, fashion shows, architectural biennales and is vying with
Beijing as the art capital of China. Its the richest, densest, fastest growing city in China, but also suffers from crime, a large sex
industry and huge rich-poor discrepancy.
