Notes on the Geography of 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 put 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 marked with a star, and in this set of pictures we'll drift west from the center past townhouses to a church (6) and freestanding villas (5).
