The Chinese hotspots of turbo urbanization have shifted: the large construction sites, engines of economic growth have moved inland to the large provincial capitals, like Xi‘an in Shaanxi. Literally thousands of high rises and shopping centers grow simultaneously, nerved by wide boulevards.

Vienna based artists Raoul Bukor and Christian Lindle in cooperation with Beijing based artist Lu Yang emerged themselves into this radical change of space by erecting a city themselves: Fishpond City - a city for fish. This permanent installation is a true to scale model of a future district of Xi‘an and located right next to the construction site.
