30 min. video with Detlev Ipsen on Urban(izing) Villages and the Mega-urban Landscape in the Pearl River Delta

Discussion: The results of a DFG-funded research project on urbanization and informal dynamics

Large urban agglomerations have emerged over the past decades and, in some cases, entire rural regions were urbanized in less than a decade. These trends not only reflect an unprecedented quantitative dimension of urbanization but also the emergence of new urban forms - beyond urbanism - thus posing new challenges to regional planners, politicians and urban governance actors.
The book has been published in the HABITAT - INTERNATIONAL Series. Beyond Urbanism
