Abstract
    Through reviewing theories and models of aquapolis and analyzing the advantages and feasibilities of creating marine cities, the author takes a fresh look at the vision of marine cities. Using text and images, he elaborates on several cases and their strategic planning of marine settlements along the coastline as well as inland for a China of the future. With an optimistic view, he argues that living on the water will not only provide one of the considered future lifestyles in China, especially in Shanghai, but will also contribute towards a new frontier for the world, as a place for those who wish to experiment with new building technologies, a new marine landscape, and new urbanism.
