Jing’an Temple & Shanghai Exhibition Centre with Spencer Dodington
THESE TWO well-known structures represent vastly different types of foreign influence upon the city of Shanghai. Today’s Jing’an Temple structure is new, however, there has been Buddhist religious activity in the area for almost 1000 years. Meanwhile, the Shanghai Exhibition Centre represents a fleeting honeymoon period, just after 1949, when China and the Soviet Union were close allies. In this new SEA walk, we will explore both sites (and the areas between them) and reflect upon the lifestyles and different uses of both building compounds.
