Danweiùthese were urban sectors in China that were characterized by close links between work, residence, and social facilities. They are the material product of socialist city planning and therefore provide an urban experience that forms a stepping stone between the hutongs of the imperial capital and the superblocks of the present-day metropolis. Contrary to the disused industrial sites in western cities that often disrupt the continuity and scale of the urban fabric, the danwei have a much closer relationship to the historical, as well as the contemporary city. In modern-day Beijing, the danwei represent a unique experimental field of urban design. Beijing Danwei looks at the history and future of former danwei and presents exemplary strategies for dealing with industrial heritage. Case studies show the problems that go hand in hand with transformation and present perspectives and potential with regard to usage and the urban regeneration of Beijing.

Urbaniseringen af Kina er den største folkevandring i menneskehedens historie. Kæmpebyer opføres med lynets hast, og senest har den kinesiske regering proklameret, at Beijing skal vokse sammen med to andre metropoler til en by med i alt 130 millioner indbyggere. Livet i Kinas kæmpebyer skildrer i tekst og fotos hverdags- og byliv i Kina. Teksten er skrevet af danskere og kinesere, som har boet og arbejdet i kinesiske storbyer. Det er dels personlige skildringer om livet i en kinesisk kæmpeby, dels baggrundshistorier, som giver perspektiv og forklaringer på, hvordan byerne udvikler sig og hvorfor. Det er historier om økonomien bag byernes udvikling og hvorfor spøgelsesbyer opstår, om forureningsproblemerne, og hvad der gøres ved det, og om kommunistpartiets første urbaniseringsplan fra 2014.

As a child growing up in Manhattan, William Helmreich played a game with his father called "Last Stop." They would pick a subway line, ride it to its final destination, and explore the neighborhood. Decades later, his love for exploring the city is as strong as ever. Putting his feet to the test, he decided that the only way to truly understand New York was to walk virtually every block of all five boroughs--an astonishing 6,000 miles. His journey took him to every corner of Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island. Helmreich spoke with hundreds of New Yorkers from every part of the globe and all walks of life. He finds that to be a New Yorker is to struggle to understand the place and to make a life that is as highly local as it is dynamically cosmopolitan. Truly unforgettable, The New York Nobody Knows will forever change how you view the world''s greatest city.
