MovingCities visits and provides background to the Quinta da Malagueira-project in Évora, masterplan and design by Álvaro Siza Vieira.
[re-post] During the past month, MovingCities went twice to Nanjing, once by train, once by bus. Once to meet up with Chinese architect Zhang Lei 张雷 – the interview with him will be published in June/July issue of MARK Magazine -, once to present at the Think Green Global Forum. Snapshots while speeding, from East to West, from Shanghai to Nanjing, at 200 km/h through the Yangtze River Delta.

Last year, when visiting Brussels, MovingCities scanned Ground Euro – the European Quarter – and the area around La Femme & Parking58. This time around we look at the “North Residency”, a housing slab built in 1974, located the back of Brussels’ North Railway Station.

And the 99% urbanized area in between these cities.
