Duncan said half of the shortlisted buildings are visitor destinations, while the other half are intelligent responses to challenging urban sites.

LOS ANGELES, March 1 (Xinhua) -- Riding on a bike carrying all his stuff, Zilong Wang, a Chinese environmentalist, left a farm in Bay Area in California on Monday morning and embarked on his journey with a mission to advocate for ecological civilization.
For the next two to three years, the 24-year-old will be on the road Nike Air Max 97 Ultra 17 Baratas , heading eastward to march though the continental United States and Eurasia and then all the way to China.
The "pilgrimage," he said, is to seek out personal experiences about the ecological and spiritual awakening happening in the 21st century and explore the cultural and economic landscape of the global village, through the lens of China's interconnectedness with the world.
"The first day (of the journey) was beautiful," Wang told Xinhua on Tuesday. "A passenger in a car rolled down her window, shouting out 'Good job!' with a big smile."
The only hiccup was his seat post breaking suddenly on the road Nike Air Max 97 Off White Baratas , he said. But luckily, a bicycle shop stood right ahead and it took him only 15 minutes to replace a new one.

"Yes, that's perhaps all true. But, on my trip across the country Nike Air Max 97 Undefeated Baratas , I saw a different China -- different from my impression just a year ago, and different from what I thought I knew," said the young man who speaks fluent English.
