ARUP DONGTAN PDF

Sze is a native New Yorker, but her father hails from Chongming Island in the Yangtze delta, which used to be dismissed as a rural backwater offshore from Shanghai before it was set aside to create Dongtan, an eco-city for half a million people. The city would ban cars , recycle water and surround itself with organic farms, forests and golf courses. Yet, five years after the World Expo the Dongtan dream has been abandoned.
