China's Great Uprooting: 250,000,000 to the City

Two Hundred and fifty million rural Chinese residents will move into newly constructed towns and villages over the next dozen years in what the New York Times calls, "a transformative event that could set off a new wave of growth or saddle the country with problems for generations to come."

What a change for Mao's peasants!  Here's part 2 of the Time's series about China's push from farm to city with an interesting slide show and below is chart showing the projected growth of China's urban population that I saw in Architecture Daily News.
