Following the decline of the smokestack industries and coal mines, Germany’s Ruhr Metropolitan Area rejuvenates itself through unprecedented renovation policies creating new centers for art, leisure, and recreation. Can the European Capital of Culture “RUHR.2010” serve as model for structural change in Hong Kong and the Pearl River Delta helping to transform the region into a novel cross border metropolitan culture centre in South East Asia?
