The Wall is a strategic vision for an alternative urban architectural model that will guide the city towards compact sustainable growth, giving at the same time ‘place’ to the millions of new migrants. A new dense 300 km long and 1 km wide urban zone along the current city border takes on the specifics of the local soil, vegetation and existing land use patterns. From birds-eye perspective the Wall looks therefore rather chaotic, but from eye-level its secret is being unravelled; Space is experienced trough a crossing of various enclosures and different spatial sequences, from the very public all the way to the private bedroom. Space is presented little by little. The next space is always unpredictable which creates a sense of mystery. The wall is a strategic approach that ranges from designing a small water gutter, to a robust and general solution for the entire China.
