Chinatown Reimagined

A Chinese architecture team has proposed a futuristic star-shaped city of 15,000 that would visit cities around the world and change the stereotypes of Chinatowns.

"The mobile town would be home to 15,000 people, and would include health resorts, sporting facilities, freshwater lakes and a digital cemetery to remember its dead.

MAD intends that the town would be transported to cities around the world. It would be fully sustainable, producing its own energy and recycling its own waste without needing to use its host cities' resources.

In a statement, MAD's architects said: 'The old China Town is a historical theme park that poisons the urban space. There must be a shock therapy to remedy this situation.'"
