Caochangdi, one of more than 300 urban villages in the city of Beijing, tells a specific story about itself and its mostly illegal residents (including farmers, floaters, taxi drivers, and world class artists), but it also has embedded within it both the problems and the possibilities of a new urban space redefining the city of Beijing at this pivotal point in human history when cities make up half of the world's population. The authors, who live and work in Caochangdi, dissect the multiple phenomena that form this dynamic urban condition.
