dc.description.abstract EWB is a direct attempt to deal with numerous uncontrolled urban emergences in Beijing; instead of the current stratifying process, it offers strategies for intensifying the dynamic density through enabling the massive subversive forces. In turn, EWB exposes the city's future of unprecedented three-dimensional congestion---a hyper-dense city. EWB respond to the all-encompassing wildness with an approach that merges two opposing concepts of urbanity into one: the top-down plan that treats developments as lockdown enclaves; the unregulated activities that flood the urban ground. It propagates a new urban process by using the vast developments as a framework to proliferate street commerce---instead of being parasitical, unregulated activities can weave into the rigid structure of existing residential blocks and disturb it like a virus infection. Once they reach the critical masses, the city will reinvent itself as an uninterrupted hyper-dense urban landscape capable of accommodating all manners of street life.
