Fast Future - Deep green in Dongtan
Arub has partnered with Shanghai Industrial Investment Corporation (SIIC) to design and build Dongtan, one of the worlds first true ecocities on Chongming Island near Shanghai, China. Leading Arup's team is architect and urban designer Alejandro Gutierrez. Beginning with trying to maintain habitat for the very rare black-faced spoonbill, the entire development was designed and engineered with environmental responsibility and sustainable development in mind. From organic farms and extensive green space to biofuels and green technology, Dongtan is poised to set the standard for sustainable development for the entire world.
