Turbulence Commission: Shadow Play: Tales of Urbanization of China by Lily & Honglei [Download Second Life for desktop and Layar for mobile devices]

Over the past few decades China has been urbanizing at an astounding pace. In 2013, the People’s Republic unveiled its plan to relocate 260 million people from China’s countryside to one of 21 “mega regions” by 2020 (cbsnews.com).
