Product Overview

The transformation of Shanghai over the last few decades is breathtaking. At one point a third of the cranes used in the construction of high-rise buildings around the world were in Shanghai. So today the city has more skyscrapers than New York, and more than the whole of the West Coast of the United States.
In Shanghai Architecture the reader is shown both sides of this amazing city, in a carefully researched and thoughtfully illustrated book. Highly visible are the new steel and glass towers of modern Shanghai but then, in contrast, hidden beneath cobwebbed electric cables and air-conditioning units, are the original buildings of the old international settlements.
