Japanese starchitect Kengo Kuma was called in to transform this 150+ year-old shipyard in Pudong into an artsy commercial space. He elected to keep most of the original structures in the 31,000 square meter space, preserving and reusing rusty steel girders, weathered old signs and soot-black chimneys. Arguably the most ambitious cultural complex in all of Pudong, the site houses the Museum of Modern Art (New York)’s only official shop in China/Shanghai, a handful of small and medium galleries hosting contemporary art shows, and an 800-seat theater.
