Daan Roggeveen launches new book: Progress & ProsperityClose

The Chinese metropolis has developed into the world’s most successful urban scheme. Combining bottom-up energy with top-down force, it pushes cities and their inhabitants towards progress, fast-forward.

China’s megacities are efficient, with well-functioning infrastructures, top-notch public transport, proper housing, steady economic growth, a low crime rate, an attractive climate for foreign investors, and a glitzy skyline to boot.

Can this metropolis be the new model for cities worldwide?

With contributions by architects, academics, artists and activists, this powerful book reveals the current condition of the Chinese metropolis. The key question: will the China model become a blueprint for cities globally?

With contributions by:
Esther da Costa Meyer, Ying Zhou, Steven Y.N. Chen, Adrian Blackwell, David Gianotten, Justin D. Stern, Jonathan Woetzel, Max Cohen de Lara & David Mulder van der Vegt, Jeffrey Johnson, Liu Yuyang, Ou Ning, Cruz Garcia & Nathalie Frankowski, Frances Arnold and Eric Tabuchi
