If only China was so perfect. Remind me how ARUP's Dongtan Eco-city went again? That's right, down the toilet. Maybe there should be more focus on preserving the existing cities and existing cycling culture and integrating them into future development as opposed to simply bulldozing centuries of culture and tradition and quality vernacular architecture and sustainable urban form. Not to mention the uprooting of many thousands of people from their family homes. Then they wouldn't have the problems creates by the many 'harmony' cities that are popping up everywhere. Then they wouldn't have to ban avatar from their movie theaters. China's interpretation of Harmony is very strange indeed.

This is an old story going that came through before Christmas thanks to a wonderfully inventive Christmas tree in Bermondsey Square in London designed by Sarah Wigglesworth Architects. There is also a magnificent bike shed there permanently designed by the same architects.
