Urban Megaprojects - here referred to as Grands Projets - are increasing in number all over the world. They have become major drivers for urban intensification and manifestations of the larger economic and political agenda of their city. As such, Grands Projets offer a productive moment to investigate current urban trends in a globally connected form of concentrated urbanisation. Featuring eight unique case studies: Marunouchi Tokyo, Lujiazui Shanghai, West Kowloon Hong Kong, Marina Bay Singapore, HafenCity Hamburg, La Défense Paris, 22@ Barcelona and King's Cross London.
