Group – Shanghai, China

2007 onwards

Established in 2007 by Bert de Muynck and Mónica Carriço, movingcities is a think tank based in Beijing whose work focuses on how the practices of architecture and urbanism affect the city. Their name is a reaction to the influential 'Shrinking Cities' project, which they critiqued for an over emphasis on just one part of a larger phenomenon. In contrast they see contemporary urbanity as being in constant flux and speak of city-regions that incorporate shrinking and expanding, rural and urban. Their work takes the form of projects, writings and collaborations as well as interviews. Recent projects have included a collaboration with Crimson on their New Towns project as well as a counter-mapping of creative industries in China. Their projects take the form of embedded research on the city, usually carried out in collaboration with other architects.
