Iconic architecture showcasedas ‘city of design’takes shape

Shanghai is a young city compared with Beijing, London and Paris. But over the past century, it has been capturing the world’s attention.

The city provided fertile ground for budding architects such as Laszlo Hudec (1893-1958) and Alexandre Leonard (1890-1946) to build their careers, as well as attracting the likes of renowned architects Jean Nouvel and Tadao Ando, who blazed new trails.

Shanghai will complete the construction of a world-class “city of design” by 2030. During the recent World Design Cities Conference in the city, renowned French architect and Pritzker Prize winner Jean Nouvel said Shanghai is outstanding especially in the field of design, architecture and art.

From historical legacies to vanguard buildings, follow Shanghai Daily to discover the city’s fascinating architecture.
