Renee's latest book "Changing Chinese Cities: The Potentials of Field Urbanism" has arrived!
"With exquisite illustrations and accessible prose, Renee Chow has elucidated in this book the dilemma facing not only the contemporary Chinese metropolis but those of growing cities worldwide. Neither nostalgic nor superficial, this book employs measured drawings, diagrams and other deeply analytical tools to show us the field conditions that once made historic Chinese cities vibrant and could make the contemporary Chinese city more livable in the face of unbridled growth. For designers, urbanists and those concerned with the physical and ecological viability of cities worldwide, this is a must-read volume"
