Chongqing, Shichuan, People’s Republic of China

One of the fastest growing cities in the world, and the epicenter of the fast-emerging Chinese West, Chongqing features some of the best and worst of twenty-first century urbanism.

Note the large-scale planning evident in the image taken from over 30,000 feet, the extensive commercial infrastructure, including significant warehousing, and transshipment facilities,  and the numerous blue roofs, common in modern Chinese cities.
