The Chinese Dream: A Society Under Construction
by the Dynamic City Foundation, Neville Mars, Adrian Hornsby


The result of several years of work by experts reflecting on possible scenarios for urbanization in China in 2020, the urban (near) future of China is analyzed in this book from every angle: economics, society, ecology, energy, architecture, urban planning and politics. The Chinese Dream presents a mirror to western societies, reflecting the crossroad where we are forced to stop and look with horror and awe at the future of the capitalist model, a model that China is embracing fast, steady and avidly.

I also published a review of this book, last week exactly (http://www.ciudadesaescalahumana.org/2009/08/libro-chinese-dream.html). I have to remark it is one of the best books I have ever had in my hands in terms of design and, of course, it addresses most of the elements of the chinese urban revolution from different perspectives.
