This book describes the challenges, opportunities, and necessities of the urban regeneration in the urban policy and city making practice in China. Through six chapters, it systematically categorises the related projects of Tianhua Group into six approaches: Regenerating Local Community, Reprogramming Industrial Structures, Recreating Urban Frontage, Reinventing Urban Artifact, Retrofitting Open Space, and Tectonics of Urban Regeneration.
By using case methods, this publication features how different regeneration projects are completed from sketch to reality. It revisits this classical topic of urban regeneration through the perspective of careful renovation and critical reconstruction in the context of China - with and as a parallel scheme of the country's major trend in urbanisation, urban expansion.
