Product Description:

This book is a short guide of architecture in Shanghai. The guide illustrates the architectural and urban landscape solely as an instant photograph and I have tried to refrain from including personal or general comments or opinions. As an architectural guide it contains illustrations of buildings, including photographs, drawings and indications of the location of buildings in the city. Furthermore, texts and photographs are explicative and unbiased in their content and significance. The guide is divided into six itineraries and each itinerary is divided into several sections, one for each building. Each section contains photographs, an exterior view as well as others to illustrate particular details or the interior view, a brief explanation, often a drawing and always the address in both English and Chinese. Each itinerary has a city map showing the location of the buildings illustrated.


Luigi Novelli, Born in Rome, Italy, graduated from the University of Rome No. I "La Sapienza" in 1987. Registered in the Architect Association of Rome.

He has engaged in new design, redevelopment, restorations, maintenance works, supervision of construction and interior design.

Since 1997 he has worked in Shanghai and Beijing. He worked for four years in a Taiwanese architecture firm in Shanghai. Since 2003 he has worked in an Italian architecture firm based in Shanghai (projects in China mainland, Mongolia, Vietnam, Kazakhstan).

This is the fourth edition of the Shanghai Architecture Guide to be publishedsince the first edition in 1999. In addition, I have published other guides whichconcentrate on residential and religious buildings. I started my research of thecity of Shanghai in 1997.

My first visit to the city was in April 1992. At that time the city had notchanged much from it was in the 1930s and 1940s. Apart from the expansion ofthe city, few changes had occurred over the years. In 1992, Pudong was still afarmland. Only one bridge spanned the Huangpu River (the second one was atthat time under construction). The promenade as embankment along the Bund!Waitan was also under construction. No highway, subway or elevated-railwaycrossed the city. The Public Museum, the Public Library and the City Hall werestill in foreign (French or British) constructed buildings. Only a few high-risebuildings were evident in the city. Pudong airport was yet to be built and the citywas served by only one airport at Hongqiao.

During the 1990s I witnessed the beginning of a large scale and rapidtransformation of the city. In just a few years, new public buildings had been builtwhich immediately became the new symbols of Shanghai: The Oriental Pearl TVTower, the Municipal Library, the City Hall, the Shanghai Museum, the GrandTheatre, and the Urban Planning Exhibition Centre. In addition, the city'stransportation system was further developed, new bridges spanned the HuangpuRiver. Thousands of residential buildings were constructed as the city started toexpand towards the suburbs.
