Abstract

British planning and urban policy making has long had an engagement with Chinese culture, whether in terms of formulating its practices or in its understandings of the environment. The status of this relationship, however, is one that is difficult to pin down, as what often arises is a sense where Chinese culture is held, on one hand, as a source of inspiration and, on the other, in contempt.
