The coming weeks, we’ll be doing a series of lectures in multiple cities in the United States about our book How the City Moved to Mr Sun – China’s New Megacities.

China is creating the largest urban society the world has ever seen. Small towns in Central and Western China are transforming at breakneck pace into huge metropolises with many millions of inhabitants. Between 2009 and 2011 we (architect Daan Roggeveen and journalist Michiel Hulshof) travelled to twenty of these emerging cities and described them in our book How the City Moved to Mr Sun.

In our lectures we try to challenge assumptions about the nature of Chinese society, and discusses the question: will China transform its triumph of brick and concrete into a model that will conquer the world?
The lectures are open to the public, so feel free to join!
