Every global city today faces the challenge of protecting their unique urban architectural heritage (often a core component of their tourist brand) while encouraging continuing economic development and growth.  But the theory and practice of preservation can differ greatly on different continents and according to different cultures…This program delves into the themes of the Museum’s current exhibition Saving Place: 50 Years of New York City Landmarks, on view until January 3, 2016.

 

Here, we show an image from Xiqu Urban Development, a new model for urban development in the rapidly emerging Chinese market completed in partnership with Octave.
