ISOCARP is proud to present PLAN 4 Magazine about “Transformation Zhongshan Avenue District” in Wuhan, China. The PLAN 4 Magazine contains articles that reflect the observations, insights and findings of the ISOCARP Urban Planning Advisory Team (UPAT) that visited Wuhan in March 2017.
Editor Frank D’hondt says the following:
“The greatest takeaway from the Wuhan UPAT is that the Zhongshan Avenue Project represents a great achievement and (inter)national benchmark towards building a more compact city that is socially inclusive, better integrated, climate resilient and that fosters cultural heritage as foundation for people-centric future shaping of urban places to be and to go. Recommendations were formulated to further improve and link the Zhongshan Avenue remake with the adjacent neighbourhoods and city-networks, culminating in some free-of-thought ideas for a future Wuhan urban agenda and governance, learning from the valuable lessons generated by the Zhongshan Avenue pilot project, as a potential benchmark for other cities in and beyond China”.
