Change is ubiquitous in China. Old buildings are replaced by uniform 30 stories flats at unprecedented pace: between 2011 and 2013 alone China used more concrete than the United States in the entire 20th century. In addition 20 million Chinese relocate to cities each year. On the other hand, China’s 5,000 year old history is firmly anchored in society. These opposite forces place China in a twilight zone between past and future, creating a world of opportunities, uncertainties and challenges.
