The rapid expansion of the High-Speed Railway (HSR) network in China has generated leapfrog urbanisation on the urban periphery. This is different to the European or Japanese style of developing station areas in city centres. Despite the aspirations of official policies towards ‘place-making’, most of the developed station areas lack ‘place quality’. Cut off from the local context, these areas lack room for public activities and communication. Guowen Dai investigates the actors and action arena for urban development surrounding the HSR stations.
