Abstract: Over the last decades, and as part of the vast programs of urbaniation in China, rubble, demolition, and wastelands have become widespread. This article analyzes the legal, political and economical framework to find structural causes for the permanence and visibility of said demolition. After a succinct description of the development of urbanization under Maoism, and the changes brought upon by the economic reforms, the article unpacks the main actors in the function of urban development, it relates the emergence of demolition with a series of dynamics, chains of authority and dependences among institutions and agents, and establishes a typology of demolished spaces. Finally, it notes social and intellectual reactions to demolition.
