Sustainable degeneration of post-industrial towns in Northeast China
Euthanasia of The Dilapidated Urban Machine
The Northeast has long been the industrial base of China. As the process of liberalization, privatization, and the third wave of industrialization continuing, the Northeast is facing severe challenges, including the invariable shrinkage and degradation. Therefore, instead of expecting the city to be a machine of development that generates infinite prosperousness, the urban establishment should be an organic system with the natural attribute of growing, dying and decomposing. The euthanasia of the industrial machines - a sustainable degeneration plan would be the best solution under the dilapidating process of the city.
