(p.31) Two Recombinant Planning
From Village to City

Andrew B. Kipnis

University of California Press

This chapter describes the physical expansion and development of Zouping from roughly 1985 to 2012. It depicts the role of urban planners, the expansion of city limits, the absorption of “villages-in-the-city,” and the construction of urban infrastructure. It further examines how shantytowns arose in some of the villages-in-the-city on the outskirts of the development zone. Particular attention is paid to conflicts among various planners. The rise of planning in general is theorized as an aspect of political modernity.

Keywords:   urban planning, urbanization, political modernity, shantytowns, infrastructure
