China's Ballooning CitiesStreaming Video - 2015
This documentary explores China's rapid urbanization through architecture and design. Within two decades, villages have exploded into mega cities and urban planners can't keep up with the rate of migration as rural people seek better economic and educational opportunities for their children. Prominent architects, including Jane Zhang, Pei Zhu, Ma Yansong, and Wang Shu, discuss their innovative museum projects and photographer Peter Bialobrzeski draws inspiration from chaos, vitality, and impermanence found in Hong Kong and Shenzhen. Development and design trends in Chongqing, Beijing, Ningbo, Hangzhou, and Ordos are also highlighted.
