Landscape and urbanism
As part of the Shenzhen & Hong Kong bi-city Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture, Joseph Grima, Jeffrey Johnson and José Esparza have created a farm in the middle of an urban square in Shenzhen.
Architects Filipe Balestra and Sara Göransson have developed a strategy to develop informal slums into permanent urban districts through a process of gradual improvement to existing dwellings instead of demolition and rebuilding. Update: this project is included in Dezeen Book of Ideas, which is on sale now for £12. More »
