Travel to China: Shanghai: Thames Town: Photo 1

world pictures China: Shanghai: Thames Town




A map of Thames Town, which is only a small part (one square kilometer with a planned population of 10,000) of the much larger Songjiang Garden City New Town. An international competition landed the planning and design of the whole shebang--garden city as well as Thames Town--on the lap of Atkins Consultancy, a major UK engineering firm. Here's what they gave Mr. Ho. The town center is the star, and in this set of pictures we'll drift west from the center past townhouses to a church (6) and freestanding villas (5).
