Giannantonio Bongiorno, curator of the exhibition 'Next stop: Hutopolis', presented together with Luis Aguirre Manso the contents of the research that will start next fall about the Chinese urban conditions.
The lecture started from the facts that convert China in a massive change scenario and pointed out the new potentials of the metropolis. The discussion focused on the balance between the vertical and horizontal city and the principles that characterise each urban model.
Hutopolis is a research program that aims to investigate a new evolution of the city based on the principles of the traditional hutongs.
The event was part of the activities programmed for the Dashilan design hop within the 2011 Beijing Design Week festival.
