Book: Office of the leading  group of  Chongqing’s overall urban planning. (1982) Overall Urban Planning of Chongqing.

Chongqing: Planing Department of Chongqing.


This book is the main source of the maps and diagrams I read, and it introduces all aspects of urban planning in Chongqing. However, it is a pity that I didn’t find a book like this published in 1950s or 1960s, to have direct information about that period.


But while searching other information, I found out urban planning in 1980s was the first urban planning of Chongqing in The People’s Republic of China. And after reading this book, narratives in this book also mention condition before 1980s. Some maps describing the existing urban condition of Chongqing, and in my opinion, that shows a result of urban development in 1950s-1960s. As written in the introduction of the narratives, I think 1950-1966 was the main period when the industrial clusters developed.
