This plan, which takes a degraded industrial area and transforms it into a breathable landscape, feels like an important project to implement, for its impact on the ecological health of Shanghai. There’s a strong need for the project it proposes—habitat restoration; addressing microclimate issues—but is it a plan that will move forward?
