Hyper Metropolis–Speculations on Future Hybrid Lifestyle in Shenzhen-LIU Xiaodu,MENG Yan,URBANUS

2015.11.19

In the era of PRD 2.0, Shenzhen is undergoing a large social transformation through its campaign of “Create in China”, attracting an elite population of migrants to inhabitat the city with a new “Shenzhen Spirit of Entrepreneurship”. What kinds of new lifestyles and new urban environments will those young entrepreneurs pursue? Will the existing urban sprawl model and ever higher towers support the continued upgrade of city development? Within the future context of PRD 2.0, speculations are generated through our observations on the transforming social, economic, cultural and political spheres of Shenzhen. We plan to look for corresponding urban and architectural solutions for the emerging entrepreneurs in 2015 UABB. We will present an animation of a revised urban system with an updated density distribution and new urban infrastructure, and we will illustrate a hybrid lifestyle in the hyper metropolis of Shenzhen in the future PRD 2.0 era through major sectional scenes in a 1:50 scaled model.
