Imagine designing an entire city. Wow.

Arup, the London-based consultancy, was last week chosen as master planner of the first phase of the multi-billion pound Dongtan “eco-city”, which is being developed by the Shanghai Industrial Investment Corporation, the Hong Kong-quoted investment arm of the Shanghai city government. The new city will be built on the eastern end of Chongming, a large island that sits in the mouth of the Yangtze river delta a few miles northeast of the city centre, and close to Shanghai’s new airport.
