Shanghai 1933 Slaughterhouse June 2014

1933 Shanghai is located in Hongkou District of Shanghai.  It is designed by the British and built in 1933 to be used as a slaughterhouse.  Now, it has been restored as a creative hub with cafes, restaurants, shops, and design workshops.  The four storey concrete building is built around a central atrium and has a spiderweb of ramps, “air bridges”, stairs, and corridors, like one of Escher’s paintings.
