“One City, Nine Towns” is an urban plan and architectural development launched in 2001 to create nine European-style towns in the outskirts of Shanghai. The idea was to relieve Shanghai’s overpopulation problem by building these western-themed new towns with an estimated capacity of one million people by 2020.

Most of the towns were still under construction back in 2012, when pictures were taken, but brand new historical were already built and inhabited. Postmodern architectural pastiche as its best enabling local Chinese population to experience living in Europe without even leaving Shanghai.

The trend spread to other Chinese cities: two hundred kilometers away from Shanghai, on the outskirts of Hangzhou there is Tiangdouchen, which is a huge replica of Paris.
