Kim studies Beijing’s underground housing market

November 20, 2014

USC Price School of Public Policy associate professor and urbanization researcher Annette Kim spent last year in China’s capital of Beijing, where she studied an overlooked side effect of the country’s rapid growth: Hundreds of thousands of people are living in makeshift, underground housing. Some are in basements; many are one or two floors below street level, in windowless rooms honeycombing the bomb shelters that every building is required to have.
