After more than thirty years of rapid growth, China’s city development is shifting from a quantity-driven model to a quality-based one. Urban regeneration, which prioritizes the making and optimization of public spaces, has become the theme of the so-called new urbanization. The building of distinctive vibrant districts centered on high-quality public space has been proven by many successful developments to be an effective way to boost social integration, create unique identity, and promote urban vitality.
