MotivationContradiction 2:The current development in the mode of setting large monofunctional industry parks in Binhai New District, hasraised a series of urban issues: functional segregation, high energy cost, low living quality. In the newest version ofgovernmental plan, the problems have not been addressed to solve or lease. In-between Tianjin Binhaifig04. Image of working and living separatelySources: (by the author, 2011)
MotivationBased on the above two contradictions, the motivation of the graduation project is to usethe HST station as an opportunity to find a proper development mode for Binhai NewDistrict.The methodology could also be applied to the other areas/cities in a rapid developingregion.

Background Industry Restructuring Since Beijing turned to focus on developing the tertiary industry, it has launched a massive industry relocation. During last 20 years, Beijing has move most its formal large factories in secondary industry to its surrounding areas in Beijing-Tianjin-Heibei Region. Tianjin, as the second biggest economic sector in the region, became the main receiving zone. >70% 50% - 70% 40% - 50% 30% - 40% 20% - 30% 2002 2009 fig12.

BackgroundIndustry RestructuringThe similar process also happened inside Tianjin itself: theinner city depends on the well linkage with Beijing, also getmore opportunity to take part in tertiary industry and strivesto consolidate its role as service and culture centre of Tianjin.Therefore, it also needs to move the secondary industry out formore available land.To achieve this, Binhai New District was established in 1994by Tianjin municipality.

BackgroundIndustry RestructuringThe restructuring of industry is not only in the single direction. Thisrelocation in Binhai was started with setting several industry parks.With the new industry gathering, more business service relatedto these industries appeared around the industry parks.

BackgroundIndustry RestructuringI describe the process by using the Dupuys definition of place in network and Sassen view in global city:- Absolute high level and low level has disappeared in the network. Service and industry did not separate simply inspace (Dupuy, 2008).- They distribute in network in a kind of interactive balance (Dupuy, 2008).- Dynamic high-tech development department also includes low-income position. Backward sectors, such as thedegraded manufacture or low-paid service, are maybe the most important sectors in rapid development (Sassen,1991).- The place in the low-level economic activity sometimes is another kind of highly specialized centre (Sassen, 1991).
Problem fieldRegional Problem-No concrete relationship between regional plan and local governmental master plan.-HST station has not been considered as an opportunity to restructure the surrounding urban area, even less in social-spatial integrated potentiality. ? ? ? ? 0 48 0 4 8 20 20 40km 40km 0 48 0 4 8 20 20 40km 40kmfig20.

Problem StatementThere are two main problems on the government plan.On one hand, the governmental plan does not solve the existing segregation in the in-between corridor.-It only enlarges the monofunctional industry area.-It does not consider the functional and social segregation in the in-between corridor.-It does not consider the hierarchy between projects and areas.On the other hand, the governmental plan does not recognise the impact and opportunity from the regional high-speed train station.-It could be an opportunity to restructure the in-between corridor and landscape for its strategic location.-It could be an opportunity to give a hierarchy to solve functional and social segregation by its priority as a regionalinfrastructure.

Research QuestionMain research question:How to use the regional high-speed train station as a new centrality to improve the spatial and social integration inthe surrounding industry area?Sub-research question:-What are the potential functions in high-speed station node relate to the industry area?-What is the possible mix-functional land use mode in labour intensive industry development area?-What is the potential network for commuters to participate into social activities?-What is the possible strategy to offer the accessible housing to workers near their working place in the market orient-ed content?-What is the potential role for the greenbelt as the linkage of urbanization and the regional park instead of a bound-ary?

RelevanceSocial relevanceThe paper gives an emphatic attention to a special group during the process of industry restructuring and relocation -commuters. They are the harmed agency in the polycentric developing process. They have to leave their home earlyand get back late. They are isolated during the daytime in their factory and journey in shuttle bus. This high time costmakes them separated from their society and their family.Because commuters still have a job and basic housing, they are still less discussed in China. However, the group isextremely huge for the labour – intensive industry developing level of China. High pressure, increasing divorce rate,more and more dink families and increasing Juvenile rate are common among them. They need to be concerned andaddressed by planners.Scientific relevanceThere are a certain amount of previous research and practice tried to find a suitable pattern for the suburban sprawllike T.O.D. (Transit Oriented Development). However, most of them have been proved not suitable to Chinese cities forthe differences in city size, economic level and decision making system. The supported service, facilities will only ap-pear if there is sufficient market and volumes of demand (Marcuse, 2008), especially under the neo-liberal economicpolicy system. The similar situation also happened in implementation of social housing policy.On the other land, the national government own absolute controlling force on large national and regional projects. In-vestments and resource can be mustered in short time. Whether there is a way for planners to integrate some facili-ties offering development with these large projects to achieve more than economic return, will be explore in the pa-per.
