Title

Reading Pearl River Delta from an Aldo Rossi perspective

 

Abstract

This article confronts the Rossi’s methodology of reading the city with Shenzhen – Chinese contemporary city that developed from a village into a city of 4 million inhabitants in less than 15 years. The article identifies the core instruments of Rossi’s theory as presented in his book Architecture of the City and systematically redeploys and tests them on the city in question. Through this a critical evaluation of the methodology is made, furthermore possible modifications are suggested.

 

Key Words
