China nurtures futuristic urban visions

This is a unique housing project in southern China by dutch firm MVDV in the industrial city of Liuzhou. The project is to be built into the eroding mountains that surround the city and will allow natural vegetation and cultivation areas.

Booming populations and hyper-urbanization have forced Chinese city planners to examine more critically spatial and environmental issues in recent years. While it is unclear what effect the Liuzhou project will have on the local ecology, it seems that natural space will at least be preserved….MVRDV's vision for the project is elegant and sophisticated, and it well represents China's dynamic modernization. The complex is slated for completion sometime next year.
