Project theme: 


Superblocks are the basic unit of China’s urban development, but they are also spatial instruments with social, cultural, environmental, and economic implications, operating between the scales of architecture and the city. In this bilingual Guide to Megablock Urbanisms, China Lab aims to document and advance a wider conversation on the policies and collective experiences of large-scale development that are shaping China’s urban future.
