One of China’s great metropolises — a boomtown without a past and hungry for the future

Founded only in 1978 as one of the first Special Economic Zones under Deng Xiaoping’s reforms, Shenzhen with its 12.5 million inhabitants is a young city. It’s also a business city, a port city, and a green city. This book — this first of its kind — introduces more than 150 relevant buildings and places that constitute the physical palimpsest of modern China’s most famous town of foundation.
