White Swan Estuary Urban Design Guangzhou, China

Italy based architect Manfredo Tafuri has put forward a proposal to rebuild the historical area of White Swan Estuary District. White Swan District is situated in Guangzhou, China. The proposal by Tafuri focuses on the 30 sq km around the riverside, which is part of a larger urban regeneration master plan by the Chinese government to reinvent the image of Guangzhou. Currently, the White Swan District can be best described as a semi urban area. On one the hand, it consists of all the trademarks of a fully functional city - industries, port facilities, warehouses etc, while on the other, the District is also home to farmland and village settlements.
