In contrast to new construction in the established cities of Europe and America, Shanghai’s new architecture and infrastructure challenges traditional design and urban planning. The exhibition asks visitors to consider the future of China—and of the rapidly urbanizing planet.

Architect and urban planner Iker Gil is curator of the exhibition. Photography is the work of Juan de Dios Perez.
