Project Chronicles Life In Fast-Growing Chinese Cities
A strategic planner from W+K Shanghai took a trip around the country, interviewing and photographing the people he met.
Strategic planner Richard Summers of W+K Shanghai visited six cities in China, interviewing the people who live and work in some of the fastest growing places in the country for a project called Boomtown Stories.
The project was inspired by a 2010 study, which identified new Chinese boomtowns that were seeing rapid increases in population, income and infrastructure development. The study named them the CHAMPS – after the cities of Chongqing, Hefei, Anshan, Ma’anshan, Pingdingshan and Shenyang.
