dc.description.abstract Between 1860 and 1945, the Chlnese port city of Tianjin became the site of up to nine foreign-controlled concessions, functioning side by side. Ruth Rogaski has argued that Tianjin's distinctiveness deserves the appellation 'hypercolony', a term which reflects Tianjin's socio-political intricacies and the multiple colonial discourses of power and space. This article focuses on the representations of the ex-Italian concession in Tianjin, a site which is currently renegotiating its identity between reinvention of the past (1901-45) and property-led regeneration. The article employs the concept of heterotopia to explore 'semi-colonial', 'hypercolonial' and' globalizing' representations of Tianjin's built form.
