As residents of Shanghai, we know the city has bold plans for the future. What better place to see the old versus the new than at this museum in People’s Square. Shanghai has every reason to be proud of its architectural heritage. Not only does the city hold some of the best early-20th century architecture in Asia, but urban development since 1992 has been nothing short of spectacular. Befittingly, Shanghai’s leaders have built one of the most comprehensive museums dedicated to explaining the city’s growth and existing architecture. Spencer Dodington will use the exhibits to explain Shanghai’s history, explore its efforts at preservation, and finally, catch a glimpse of what Shanghai will become in the next fifteen years.
