Variegated Landscapes of Chinese Urban Development in Wuxi and Dalian

By dr. Chin Ee Ong - This project considers the power, identity and equity issues that emerge from urban development in China’s ‘second tier’ cities and will focus on the political, cultural and social discourses that shape the variegated spaces, uneven development and their spatial implications. In doing so, this project seeks to contribute to an understanding of contemporary Chinese urbanism and urban development.
