McDonaldisation of Cities


The World Cities Summit is happening in Singapore now and one issue being discussed is the sustainable development of a city. I’m just wondering whether the city has become such a formulaic response to urban living that we fail to think outside the box on other ways of sustainable living.

This thought inspired me to take the photo above, where I juxtaposed the McDonalds store across The Bund in Shanghai with the city skyline itself. After all, the food chain is an expert on providing uniform service and food wherever you go. Check out my other photos of Shanghai.
