Bert de Muynck | MovingCities published in a recent issue of MARK magazine an interview with Sun Jiwei 孙继伟, District Mayor of Shanghai Jiading District People’s Government [Jiading New City 嘉定区]. Currently Sun Jiwei 孙继伟 is fully engaged in public administration and plotting the future of a district with 1.2 million inhabitants, about an hour’s drive from the heart of Shanghai. Jiading is no Curitiba, Bogotá or Ljubljana, where mayors with architectural aspirations – Jaime Lerner, Enrique Peñalosa and Zoran Janković, respectively – have been given mandates by the people. In Jiading, as in towns and cities all over China, the mayor serves the People’s Government. Interview now online.
