Students who seek for inspiration for a ‘Transforming Chinese cities’ graduation project may want to look at the recently published Mapping Atlas of Shenzhen here.
This publication was made in response to a call of the 2017 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture (Shenzhen) (UABB) ‘Cities, Grow in Difference’. The atlas is based on master graduation theses of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) from 2013 to 2017. Since 2012, TU Delft collaborated with INTI (International New Town Institute in the Netherlands) for research and education programmes on the development of Shenzhen. Materials shown in this atlas are chosen mapping work from these master theses, which visualize the socio-economic and spatial conditions of urban villages in Shenzhen.
