2022. Shanghai is the largest city in the world, which implies an intense urban life, a dense mobility and a big need of production (food, water, energy,…). Speed, pollution, social gaps due to centralisation, lack of respiration constitute the daily life of people in Shanghai.
2122. Shanghai is the largest city in the world. Cars don’t exist. You can see people walking and riding bike to go to work, to transport food or to enjoy fresh air. The proximity services, mixed-use developpment, and decentralisation permit human scale mobilities, which are deeply rooted in chinese culture.
The outdated infrastructure is a grid that produces and distributes renewable energy for the citizens and for public transportations. The old medieval waterways return to life and bring water and food, and also offers new hubs and soft mobilities. You bump into a couple of friends fishing for their diner and they ask you to join them. You see, from their boat, old roads transformed into proximity space for organic farming. Your neighboor says “Ni hao !” while offering you a splice of watermelon.
