    This publication is in response to the call of 2017 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture (Shenzhen) (UABB) “Cities, Grow in Difference”, from the perspective of urbanism: the synthesis of factors that collectively determine the spatial use of the city.
    This atlas is based on master graduation theses of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) from 2013 to 2017. Since 2012, TU Delft collaborated with INTI (International New Town Institute in the Netherlands) for research and education programmes on the development of Shenzhen. In the past 4 years, more than 10 students did their master theses on urban villages in Shenzhen. Materials shown in this atlas are chosen mapping work from these master theses, which visualize the socio-economic and spatial conditions of urban villages in Shenzhen, covering areas from the central urban districts (such as Baishizhou) to the peripheral districts (such as Dalang) and new towns (such as Guangming New Town).
