Micro-urbanism

The highly commended project Micro-urbanism responds to a widespread problem in Shanghai. When districts are completely rebuilt, the residents must evacuate and move into temporary housing until the work is completed.

The project team proposes building “migrate megas” – residential units that can be expanded as needed, and integrated into the urban fabric after the temporary users move out.
