    • Introduction2
    • Confronting the current urban problems such as traffic jam, environmental challengeand urban sprawl, the development of public transport network is often regarded as asustainable solution. In some countries, the so-called Transit-Oriented Development(TOD), which focuses on the mixed-use, compacted developments surrounding the publictransport node, has become a trend. However, the introduction of public transport networkwill not just effect the land developments of the proximate areas of transit stations/stopsbut also largely influence the spatial structure of a metropolitan region, including bothnew towns and existing city areas. Beijing, as a global metropolitan city that is still in anintensive urbanization, can be a show case of the urban transformation guided by thedevelopment of public transport network. Beijing (Air Photo) Although the first subway line in Beijing had been built in the mid 1960s, the publictransport development, especially the development of urban rail transit system, wasnot emphasized as a solution of mass traffic for a long period. Within the urbanizationdriven by the market-oriented reform, urban expressway and private car traffic used tobe considered as the backbone of urban development, which inevitably caused a seriesof aforementioned urban problems. From the last decade, the construction of publictransport network was eventually reemphasized in Beijing. Till the end of 2011, the subwaynetwork in operation contained 15 lines, in total 372 km. According to the existing plan,the urban rail transit network in Beijing will be extended to 30 lines and 1,050 km in 2020.In the near future, there will be 2-3 lines completed and put into use each year. The large-scale extension of public transport network has significantly affected and will largely guideBeijing’s urban re-development, which means not only urban expansion but urban renewal. 3
    • In the context of Beijing’s large-scale development of public transport system, theresearch and design task of IFoU Summer School 2012 will focus on the issues on thechallenges for urban planning and design in Beijing as an emerging global city. Alongwith the new subway lines under construction (e.g. Line 7 and Line 14, which will beput into operation at the end of 2013), the newly-introduced rail transit network willbring on many opportunities (new centrality, social housing, public space, environment-friendly development, etc.), as well as threats (land speculation, social exclusion, spatialsegregation, urban sprawl, etc.), for the sustainable urban development. Apart fromcontributing to the urban expansion, the extension of public transport network will be, moreimportantly, linked to the urban renewal of existing built-up areas. The themes of summerschool will be concentrated on those spatial questions and potentials about the urbanfunctions, spaces and morphologies around the public transport nodes. A challengeablesite in the old city of Beijing will be chosen for research and design. The Existing Subway Network of Beijing The Planned Subway Network of Beijing (2015) 4
    • Tianqiao North – The Site 5
    • Tianqiao North area is located inthe old city of Beijing. Next to the north-south axis of Beijing’s old city, this areais nearby the Qianmen shopping streetto the north, the Tianqiao Performing ArtsDistrict (a historical district for traditionalfolk performance, which is underreconstruction) to the south, the Templeof Heaven to the east, and many otherattractive venues. The subway Line 7,which is still under construction and will beput into use before the end of 2014, willpass by the site, with two stations at itsnortheast and northwest corners. Site Location in Beijing Site Surroundings 6
    • The Site As a neighbourhood in the historical “outer city”, the construction of Tianqiao Northarea can be traced to Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Till the end of Qing Dynasty (1844-1911), many hutong blocks had been established. From 1914 to 1928, the XiangchangNew District – a pilot project for “new urban district” – was planned and implemented onthe waste land in the centre of the site. In the 1950s, the Soviet-style housing blocks andpublic buildings were built on the both sides of Yong’an Lu – a main street along the southboundary of Tianqiao North area. Between 1960s and 1990s, many mid-rise and high-risebuildings were inserted into the area. Historical Maps 7
    • Today, Tianqiao North has become a mix-used inner-city neighourhood. In anurban area of 51.75 ha and three sub-neighbourhoods (Liuxue Lu sub-neighbourhood,Xiangchang Lu sub-neighbourhood and Lazhu Hutong sub-neighbourhood), about 20,000residents are living in the houses of different types and ownerships (owner-occupied,public-rented and private-rented). Mixed with the residential buildings, there are shops,schools, hospitals, hotels, enterprises and office buildings. Many local businesses, eitherfixed or mobile, are scattered anywhere in the neighbourhood. With the vibrant locallifestyle, as well as the buildings and urban fabric that were developed in different periods,Tianqiao North area is a very representative and “ordinary” neighbourhood of Beijing’s oldcity.

In this highly dense neighbourhood (13.5 m2 per capita),many old buildings (especially those which were built before the 1950s) are evidentlydilapidated. The outdoor environments are dirty and disordered, and the urban form isfragmented. The infrastructure and local facilities are incomplete. And the traffic systemis not well organized. Tianqiao North area has been enrolled as one of the urban renewalareas since the early 1990s, but the renewal was never implemented. At present, theintroduction of subway Line 7, as well as the redevelopment of Tianqiao Performing ArtsDistrict, brought on the new opportunities for revitalizing this old neighbourhood. However,the wholesale demolition-reconstruction or gentrification is still the realistic threats. 14
    • Sub-themes 15
    • 1. Subway Development and New CentralityThe extension of public transport network, especially the subway system, will carry greatpotential for the development of new centralities surrounding the public transport nodes.Those new centralities can be a result of not only urban expansion but urban renewal.In between the newly-introduced subways stations and the under-constructed TianqiaoPerforming Arts District, Tianqiao North area is located in a critical place. It might playa role of linking public transport nodes and a new centrality. Yet there is still a crucialquestion: which direction the neighbourhood itself will go forward? Will it become anintegral part of new centrality or a buffer zone with its local identity?2. Urban Rail Transit Network, Social Housing and Urban RehabilitationIn order to deal with the serious housing problem, social housing development startedto be reemphasized in Beijing. The new social housing developments are often linked tothe extension of urban rail transit network. On the other hand, the development of socialhousing and subway network will indubitably be beneficial to the low-income groups.The challenge is if this kind of social-oriented developments will only focus on the urbanexpansion areas or also contribute to improving the living conditions of deterioratedneighbourhoods, the latter of which actually means urban rehabilitation.3. Public Space, Urban Morphology and Public Transport NodeThis sub-theme will be related to the issues on urban design surrounding the urban railtransit nodes. With respect to the old, inner-city neighbourhoods such as Tianqiao North,the new subway lines and stations will generate an opportunity to reshape urban spaceand urban form. From the station to home, the introduction of public transport node in anold neighbourhood is actually a generator of new public life. But it also results in a seriesof spatial questions including the redesign of public space, the improvement of outdoorenvironments and the defragmentation of urban morphology.4. Public Transport and “Green” NeighbourhoodThe public transport network usually, through the nodes and interfaces, connects withthe non-motorized transport such as walking and bicycling. They together compose a“green” traffic system, which will significantly facilitate the daily round of local residents.Furthermore, the establishment of an environment-friendly transport system will largelypush ahead, on both urban and local scales, an integral planning for creating theecologically sustainable communities. With the introduction of new subway stations, thedesign questions are not only about the development of a local non-motorized transportnetwork but, more importantly, the possibility to establish a “green” neighbourhood inTianqiao North area. 16
