Urban renewal is the sharing of urban development rights. In the market economy, the maximization of development interests has become a rational decision. Although they focus on the same outcome, the stakeholders have independent procedure to achieve their own economic target. Yet the city is manipulated by all kinds of intricate forces.All relevant parties have the inclination of making the decision that can bring the greatest advantage under their own reasonable regulation-this is what we call the 'urban algorithm'. In this way, urban renewal can recreate a new kind of harmony that improves the urban competitiveness. So, urban renewal has become a comprehensive and sophisticated research area that cannot be concluded from scattered information. This exhibition adopts the form of 'spying' to show the familiar or neglected 'urban algorithm' of separate stake holders. As the inclination of each stakeholder emerges gradually, the value of urban development can be calculated, the seeking of city conformation is then generated. Meanwhile, our exhibition tries to illustrate the fact that the understanding of each algorithm varies from different person given his own social and sensational background. The urban algorithm is a future way of city construction.
