内容简介

In this pioneering study of contemporary Chinese urban form, Duanfang Lu provides an analysis of how Chinese society constructed itself through the making and remaking of its built environment. She shows that as China’s quest for modernity created a perpetual scarcity as both a social reality and a national imagination, the realization of planning ideals was postponed. The work unit – the socialist enterprise or institute – gradually developed from workplace to social institution which integrated work, housing and social services. The Chinese city achieved a unique geography made up in large part of self-contained work units.

Remaking Chinese Urban Form provides an important reference for academics and students conducting research on China. It will be a key source for courses on Asia in architecture, urban planning, geography, sociology and anthropology, at both the graduate and undergraduate level. The insightful yet accessible introduction to urban China will also be of interest to architects, urban designers and planners – as well as general audience who wish to learn about contemporary Chinese society.

Duanfang Lu is Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning at the University of Sydney, Australia.

总有点觉得讲(urban)form的有点意犹未尽

谈城墙的那一章很有新意
有一些没有设想到的地方
Last time...I met the author, and told her: Dear Madam, I have read your book for many times...
本书最大的贡献是提出了scarcity在中国城市建设里导致的结果。可能因为受众是西方读者的缘故,反反复复地跳到西方理论里来做对照,中国本身的脉络梳理反而显得很破碎。这个评分还蛮中肯的。
