Shenzhen has risen to become the predominant epicenter of high-tech design and manufacturing in the world. Variously called the “world’s factory,” “the new Silicon Valley,” and the “maker’s dream city,” Shenzhen has a complete ecosystem that contains everything needed for all stages of electronics production all in one place. This has turned the city into a staging ground for large high-tech companies, rising startups, and independent innovators from all over the world looking to get their stuff made as efficiently as possible. Tech giants like Huawei, ZTE , and Tencent all got their starts here, and many more companies seem to be on the way up.

 

Shenzhen is the place where China’s first forays into Reform and Opening — the experiment that sparked China’s particular brand of capitalism — was first deployed. Hardly 35 years ago the place was nothing but a string villages and rice paddies, with 30,000 peasants peaking across the border at an economically rollicking Hong Kong. Now, it is a 12 million person megalopolis that can rival its more established neighbor in almost every way. No city in history has ever grown so large so quickly.

 

It is said that 90 percent of the world’s electronics are made in Shenzhen. With tens of thousands of factories, 5,000 product integrators, and thousands of design houses, this city has become a one-stop-shop for anything consisting of circuits, chips, LEDs, and touchscreens. Shenzhen is also home to 20% of China’s P.h.Ds, has the country’s highest rate of business owners, and has produced more billionaires than anywhere else in China. In 2014, The Economist declared Shenzhan to be the best place in the world for a hardware innovator to be.

 

“In the old days, if you wanted to be innovative, if you wanted to have the latest technology, you would go to Silicon Valley for electronics. . . But today, it’s Shenzhen,” declared David Li, the co-founder of China’s first makerspace.

Geta load of this, Chinese robot parks your car for you

 
NAROS UPDATE(August)
NAROS UPDATE(August)

 

SHENZHEN, China(Reuters)- The dreaded act of parallel parking could soon become a thing of the past with Chinese inventors backing their new parking robot to take away the stress for anxious drivers.

 

The laser-guided "Geta"(get a car)robot slides under your vehicle, picks it up, finds a parking space in the lot and places the car in the tightest of spots.

 

The soon to be launched robot needs just two minutes to park a vehicle, does not need tracks, has 360 degrees mobility and will utilize space better than humans, said creators Yee Fung Automation Technology, based in the south China city of Shenzhen.

 

"The parking robot is designed to increase parking space," Yee Fung’s 33-year-old chief executive and brainchild of Geta, Marco Wu, told Reuters.

 

"The robot can go everywhere ... and will reform parking in the future."

 

Mainland China is expected to have more than 200 million cars by 2020, the government say, meaning that finding space to park could become increasingly difficult.

Merge with Shenzhen? Here’s a 2047 proposal

 

NAROS UPDATE(August)

 

England will find itself out on a limb if Scotland and Northern Ireland decide to split from the United Kingdom following the Brexit vote.

 

If the break-up happens, UK will cease to be a genuine global power.

 

Following the recent developments in Britain, some observers have suggested that the renminbi’s European trading hub be shifted out of London and moved into Frankfurt or Brussels.

 

While the argument is understandable, we should bear in mind that the shape of things to come for the euro and the European Union represent a big uncertainty itself.

 

The global financial markets, meanwhile, remain precarious, as socioeconomic provincialism and protectionism appear to be taking root among many people.

 

Given all these factors, one can argue that Beijing must hit the brakes on its efforts to take its currency international.

 

To avoid exchange rate volatility, China may retain a firm grip over renminbi capital account convertibility in the foreseeable future.

 

If the forecast of delayed renminbi marketization carries conviction, Beijing needs to multiply the circulation and foreign exchange turnover of Hong Kong dollars to allow the currency to serve as the “shadow” renminbi.

NAROS UPDATE(August)

NAROS UPDATE(August)

 

BYD, China’s largest new energy vehicle maker, said Monday night it won a 1.52 billion yuan(US$227 million)preliminary bid to supply hundreds of electric buses to Shenzhen’s state public transportation operator.

 

The Shenzhen-based automaker, which counts US billionaire Warren Buffett as an investor, is expected to provide four batches of new energy buses to Shenzhen Bus Group under the tender offer, according to a filing to the Hong Kong stock exchange.

 

The company’s shares had risen 1.66 per cent to HK$52.10 as of 2.13pm Tuesday.

 

The official websites of the Shenzhen Bus Group and Shenzhen International Tendering Co carried the bidding results.

 

The deal was another boost for the automobile and battery maker’s prospects only days after South Korean conglomerate Samsung Electronic snapped up a 3 billion yuan, or 2 per cent, stake in BYD, with the funds to be used to ramp up its electric vehicle production.

Icons of Design:Shenzhen’s Monumental Building Projects

 

NAROS UPDATE(August)

 

Few cities have undergone radical urban transformation like Shenzhen. Designated as China’s first Special Economic Zone in 1980, this market town of 30,000 people experienced an explosive population increase to 10,000,000 inhabitants over the last 30 years. Shenzhen’s powerful economic status drove massive building projects across the city; new architecture seemingly emerged overnight, continuously reshaping the city’s identity. Today, Shenzhen stands as one of the fastest growing cities in history, as well as a global financial and trade hub that holds one of the world’s busiest container ports.

 

The following collection draws together some of Shenzhen’s monumental building projects completed within the last few decades. Reflecting the city’s radical morphological shifts, these large projects showcase how scale can impact formal and spatial experience. Designed by renowned architects from throughout China and across the world, the projects explore the inherent connections between economy, architecture and monumentality.

Former AC Milan coach Clarence Seedorf takes over at Shenzhen FC

 

NAROS UPDATE(August)

 

Former Dutch soccer international Clarence Seedorf has been appointed coach of struggling Shenzhen FC, the club said on Thursday.

 

The club, which plays in China’s second league, said on its website that the former AC Milan coach would take over immediately.

 

Seedorf was hired “because our club’s league performance in the first half of the year has not been what we had aimed for”, Shenzhen FC said.

 

“We believe that Mr Seedorf’s rich international experience and advanced ideas about the game can push Shenzhen FC to achieve new milestones,” it added.

 

The move would “bring more global attention to China and Shenzhen,” it said, without stating the value or duration of Seedorf’s contract.

Shenzhen Buji Church Starts New Construction Including Chinese Design Elements

 

NAROS UPDATE(August)

 

Buji Church situated in Xialilang Village, Shenzhen, is being reconstructed to another place owing to the urban construction planning occuring in the region after the gospel was first preached into Buji Subdistrict since the late-1800s. 

 

Recently Lin Jie, the Minister of United Front Work Department of the CPC Shenzhen Municipal Committee, claimed that the church should consider putting Chinese elements into the new construction design, as a contribution to the sinocization of Christianity.

 

Theodore Hamberg, a Swedish missionary, is the first man to evangelize in Buji in 1852, claimed the church. In 1853, Buji Church was being built in Lilang Village and completed in 1854.

 

As the spread of the gospel grew in the region, another new church was founded in Laoxu Village's subdistrict. Therefore, there were two churches in the area which went through relocation and repair.
