Abstract

This interview centers on the urban development issues faced by most Chinese cities. Yan Meng, Principal Architect and Co-founder of URBANUS Architecture and Design, shares his perspective on cities, and discusses what kinds of cities are dynamic, lively, and healthy by taking urban village in Shenzhen as an example. Besides, as one of the curators, he hopes that the 2017 Shenzhen Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism / Architecture can offer an opportunity to break boundaries, foster communication and exchange, and explore new urban development pattern in the future. Meng also believes that architects’ roles as an observer, a thinker, and a researcher could allow them to better respond to the unique context and cultural characteristics of a site as a designer.
