Shanghai: The Fastest City?

This conference newspaper follows the core themes of the first six Urban Age conferences, asking questions about public space, transport, housing and labour in the city. In Shanghai, the focus turned to an engagement with fast changing spatial and social structures in public spaces, changes towards a more car oriented transport system, labour markets and innovation, and the step-change in terms of housing expectations and delivery for a fast growing city. The data section extends to compare New York, London and Shanghai.
