  1. I read a 4-part series of articles about Dongtan at http://www.cleanerairforcities.blogspot.com

    There were two interview posts with Arup, a video post, and an opening article referencing the article in Wired.

    The main article is called “China’s New Green City” and the link is http://cleanerairforcities.blogspot.com/2008/08/new-green-city-for-china.html

    Hi thanks for stopping by and commenting. I recall reading somewhere after posting this that a lot of the development is in greenfield habitat so maybe this isn’t all positive. I am a pragmatist though, sometimes comprimises need to be made.

    I just read the comments on your links and as the commentors point out its not the best idea to buld a new city on a nature reserve, no matter how green it is…
