Overpopulation

This photo demonstrates the disadvantage of urbanization. As China goes through a rapid urbanization, a major problem has emerged, overpopulation. China has the largest population in the world, of 1.4 billion people. To create housing in major cities means building up instead of out. In this photo we see Shanghai with its 957 high-rise buildings and 126 skyscrapers, packing in dense population of over 14 million people. The photo serves as a visualization to how crowded China is, the buildings stretching out into the distance under a perpetual grey polluted sky that has now become trademarked to China due to this rapid urbanization.
