Urban Design Studio: Shanghai

Jeffrey Nesbit, Charles Waldheim

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This body of work investigates alternative solutions to the conventional and widely accepted standards of urban planning models. Rather than following the Classical approach, in which urban components are organized upon a global top-down logic, 'Intensive Differentiation' provides an opportunity to uniquely identify new systems of urban organizations determined by communities of interacting urban-agents. Fundamentally, this speculative work operates and aligns itself along an ideological discourse based upon notions of "landscape as metaphor". Capable of responding to transformative behaviors, much like that of microorganisms, a redetermination of landscape urbanism methods allow for identifying innovative strategies of re-structuring our highly dense urban topography.
