A New Approach of Urbanization in China:The Case of Dalang
The process of urbanization in Europe benefits from diversified approaches,which result in a lively ecosystem comprised of villages,towns,and cities of various sizes.Distinctive from the building-form-scratch way in the United States,European urbanization has to both take into consideration the remarkable cultural traditions,and strive for innovations based on those traditions. This provides China with valueable examples.
In China’s current urbanization movement,Dalang stands not only for a typical industry-based community,but also a representing case of an immigrant society.This dual identity creates both strength and challenges for Dalang in its process of urbanization.Today,with the gathering of domestic and international experts and scholars from the fields of urbanization,urban reinvigoration,social development,and environmental reservation,this forum hopes to bring forth thought provoking conversations about the development of Dalang and China’s urbanization,what we should do and where we can learn from.
The happening of this forum partly relies on the efforts of the volunteers.We hope the forum couldalso help to make known Dalang’s advocacy for “a fashionable silicon valley and an eco-friendly Dalang,”both aiming at boosting the sense of belonging andfulfillment of Dalang’s young workers.
Since the industrial civilization , especially since urban civilization is oriented to launch the process of urbanization since the efforts of the majority of mankind is to isolate themselves from the earth .
The beginning is that we invented shoes, feet from the soil gravel floor where isolated , but we also feel the earth solid or, if soft ; later we invented cement concrete, the surface hardening , the same as the mercury spilled spread to the earthworms , moles, crickets re-create a canopy overhead , the perception of the human foot and the earth completely separated . Still later, we invented the automobile , with iron to the body wrapped up, it was found that the speed of the internal combustion engine produced , there is a savage pleasure without any explanation , the human from the natural snuggle with effective distance tear open.
The tear in the very beginning , with intense pleasure , as just entering the era of industrial civilization futuristic literature has shown the same pains to praise factories, buildings, speeding car …… But soon , the human like a runaway child , like regret, the negative impact of automobile era overshadowed speed quickly bring pleasure .
People are once again looking for a way to link the earth , and start biking.
The benefits of bike that can reduce the speed to escape the pull of the internal combustion engine , feel the terrain , can not enter the city into the car fold , an interpersonal grew from the Abandoned Garden , an Admittance site , a broken end road , a small Gangcha …… bike outside in addition to a means of transport , or an exploration tool , a rover .
But the bike is still dangerous , full occupation of the city in the car of the moment, the confrontation between the metal and the human skin , no doubt is a natural weakness bike , even if Critical Mass movement ( a temporary build-up against a lot of bike sport car city ) sweeping the globe, still but nothing more than taking the victory.
Only retreated to the greenway bike up, which is a natural viewing areas throughout the urban core area with the new bike path, is the Chinese city manager ‘s initiative to re- build a neglected abandoned for many years low-speed transportation network, has just begun .
In Longhua District , Big Wave Green Road leads in two directions , respectively, Guanlan and bright , suitable for dozens of kilometers of flat road riding , nestled in the trees along the road with view of the countryside.
With the image of the green trail riding instantly fixed, and build on display , with the exhibition show the form of a bicycle wheel and the earth the way links , for the fledgling green road construction has a positive impetus and hope in the near future be able to see to , greenway only has tourism and leisure functions in the urban core area greenways can develop slowly evolved into a system to improve the traffic system .
