Build up? Tear down? Preserve? Destroy?
Last spring, we gathered a group of architects, preservationists and historians to discuss the shape of Shanghai'urban landscape. This month, the developers weigh in: our panel includes the biggest names in Shanghai urban development Vincent Lo of the Shui On Group, who developed Xintiandi; Christopher Choa, who has been involved in the Waitan Yuan project and the redevelopment of traditional lane housing; Shanghainese architect and author Ren Guang Yu, who has recently completed a book on Shanghai architecture and development, and Ben Wood, the "god of adaptive re-use," who was the principal architect for Xintiandi.
We expect discussion, debate and argument about the state of Shanghai's urban development. If the future of Shanghai's physical landscape interests you, then this is one event not to miss.
