C-Lab produced a bootleg edition of one of it's favorite magazines, Urban China. So that other fans can appreciate its ideas, C-Lab translated some of the magazine's articles and presented them in English. Created just after the collapse of Lehman Brothers, the issue covers the topic of crisis and presents architectural responses to urban emergencies. The publication also includes new contributions by Mark Wigley, Jiang Jun, Lucia Allais, John McMorrough, Kazys Varnelis, Geoff Manaugh, Manuel Hertz, Jason Zuzga, and Janette Kim and Erik Carver. More on the C-Lab site.
