Construction of the Metro Line 11 extension (shown on map above) to Shanghai Disneyland has been completed and testing is expected to start early next year, subway operator Shanghai Shentong Metro Group said yesterday. The final sections of the 12.3 kilometer route were put into place over the weekend, though development work is still ongoing at the three “Disney” stations, the company said. The new line starts at Luoshan Road and includes two stops — Kangqiao Road E. and Hengxin Road — on its way to the theme park. Both the extension and the tourist attraction are set to open next year. — Shen Xinyi

Buildings still useful in contemporary society
19 September 2014
Shanghai Daily


Time Out

FAMOUS Beijing journalist Wang Jun recently read a biography of architect Laszlo Hudec and asked me, “Why does Shanghai love him and what’s behind ‘Hudec fever’?”

Renowned for his best-selling “Beijing Record” and long-time devotion to heritage preservation in the capital city, Wang took an interest in the European architect who is relatively unknown in Beijing but repeatedly mentioned by his Shanghai friends.

Earlier this year, Hudec was voted a “Shanghai Symbol” by millions of Chinese netizans. He was the only foreigner among a galaxy of Chinese celebrities.

His masterpieces, Park Hotel on Nanjing Road and the Normandie Apartments on Wukang Road, were also listed in “99 Shanghai Symbols,” a campaign launched by the Shanghai Tourism Administration to find “reasons for loving Shanghai.”

“Hudec’s old Shanghai,” a forum on China’s leading cultural website Douban.com, has attracted more than 2,600 “Hudec fans.” Known as “wu fen,” a Chinese abbreviation for Hudec fans, they visit his buildings regularly and exchange their findings. On Cultural Heritage Day in June, they flocked to “Green House” (333 Tongren Road), once tycoon D.V. Woo’s residence, as it was Hudec’s last big Shanghai project.

Unlike late Shanghai Mayor Chen Yi and writer Eileen Chang who were also on the list of “Shanghai Symbols,” Hudec was a strange foreign name to most locals just a few years ago.

Born in today’s Banska Bystrica, Slovakia, during the Austro-Hungarian monarchy in 1893, Hudec was enlisted to fight during World War I and was caught by the Russian army and sent to a Siberian prison. In 1918 while being transferred, Hudec jumped from a train near the Chinese border and fled to Shanghai.

Hudec had studied architecture at the Hungarian Royal Joseph Technical University in Budapest and once in Shanghai he began working at an American firm. He started his own architectural firm in 1925 and went on to design 53 projects including Park Hotel and the Grand Theatre.

But after he left for Switzerland in 1947, this once famous name was nearly forgotten until 2008, when the Hungarian Consulate General in Shanghai and local government launched the Year of Hudec. The widely reported, yearlong event fired public interest in this architect and the city’s architectural heritage. Hudec’s quickly soaring fame is regarded by local scholars as a cultural phenomenon and has been christened “Hudec fever.”

“It is impossible for your eyes to avoid his buildings. After he became popular, you realized Hudec’s works are all around the city. Hudec couldn’t have secured such a position in Shanghai’s architectural history if he had only done a few projects,” says Tongji University Vice President Wu Jiang.

“Hudec’s works represented the modern culture of the 1930s and strongly showcased the spirit of Shanghai at the time. After China reformed and opened up, people began to realize the beauty of that era,” Wu adds.

Tongji University cultural professor Ying Yuli, who often organizes salons about old Shanghai, says the interest in the architect also stems from the relatively good conditions of Hudec buildings. Only 10 of his 53 projects had been demolished during the massive construction that occurred in the 1980s and 1990s.

“A nostalgic wave emerged among young people during the past decade. The soft things of old Shanghai, such as language and lifestyle, had long faded away. But these solid heritage buildings are there for them to see and touch,” Ying says.

Wang Lin, director of the City Planning Bureau’s Historic Conservation Department, attributes the good condition of Hudec buildings to excellent quality and modern design, which he says make them easy to renovate for modern uses.

Shanghai passed the country’s first law for preserving modern buildings in 1991, which also helped. Since then Shanghai has listed four groups of historic buildings for preservation. It covers 632 projects with 2,142 buildings. The new list is scheduled to come out later this year.

Among them, 28 Hudec projects have been listed. The Grand Theatre and Sun Ke’s Residence on Panyu Road were among the first group, along with most buildings on the Bund.

Famous scholar Zheng Shiling, who heads a municipal committee of experts to evaluate historic buildings, says “it has been a slow process to realize the value of heritage buildings.”

“During the massive construction in the 1980s and 1990s, our city paid a big price — two-thirds of the buildings built before 1949 were demolished and less than 1,000 of the 9,000 traditional lanes survived,” he says.

Hudec’s Union Brewery, for instance, was nearly demolished to make way for a park along Suzhou Creek. Although Wang says the main structure was saved, the original windows and a set of British brewery machines were lost forever.

By 2002, the city’s top officials started paying greater attention to protecting old buildings. Officials even issued a statement saying “preservation was also development” and “the strictest methods for preservation need to be adopted.”

Shanghai now has 12 downtown historical areas with another 32 in the suburbs. Hudec buildings are widely sprinkled in seven of the 12 downtown historical areas, which help ensure their preservation.

People’s Square is one of the 12 downtown areas where Hudec signature works can be found. Park Hotel, the Grand Theatre and Moore Memorial Church all proudly stand today in the area.

The city also has 64 historic streets that can not be widened. This helps to maintain the original look of the streets and preserve the buildings on both sides. Hudec buildings flank many of these streets.

Today nearly half of Hudec’s buildings are still used for their original function, which is also good for preservation.

Zheng says, “We have explored a ‘Shanghai model’ for preservation, which is to give heritage buildings multiple functions, for example, turning an old factory into a creative center. Many excellent cases have come up during the past decade.”

Tongji University Vice President Wu says heritage buildings are different than antiques, which can be displayed behind glass.

Sarah McLeod, chair of the UK’s Association of Preservation Trusts, agrees with Wu.

“Architecture is dead if it is not used,” she says. “A heritage building will only survive if it’s given a 21st century use that is relevant to the needs of people today.”

In Hudec’s buildings today, one can rent a room for a night, enjoy a movie or even pray. More Hudec works, including the “Green House,” will open to the public this year after renovations are completed.

As to journalist Wang’s question about the city’s love for Hudec, the answer is obvious. Hudec buildings have stood the test of time and are not dusty old museums. As time marches on and change is apparent for all to see, they remind us of the past. They contain many memories, and at the same time, create fresh ones every day.

New Metro line sees light at end of tunnels
Shanghai Daily
September 19, 2014

CONSTRUCTION of Huaihai Road M. Metro station, a key stop on the second phase of Line 13, reached a major milestone yesterday with the completion of tunneling work.

Working at up to 71 meters below ground, four tunnel-boring machines took more than five months to create the core infrastructure for the new station, the main body of which is 33m underground, the subway operator said yesterday.

Once completed, Line 13 will stretch more than 33 kilometers from Jiading District to the Pudong New Area and feature 31 stations.

With a total cost of 19.8 billion yuan (US$3.2 billion), the project is being developed in three parts. Phase one, from Jinyun Road to Jinshajiang Road, opened at the end of 2012, while phase two, from Jinshajiang Road to Nanjing Road W., will be completed next year.

Construction will begin on the third phase at the end of the year and should be completed by the end of 2017.

Once fully operational, Line 13 will link with all other lines on the network, with the exception of Line 5.

The biggest difficulty faced during the construction of the line is the huge depths at which the contractors have to work, the operator said.

The line travels under both the Yan’an and North-South elevated roads, as well as Metro Line 1, it said.

Polar theme park to be built in city
Shanghai Daily
September 23, 2014


An artist’s rendition of the new polar theme park.

MORE than 500 species of polar animals and 20,000 types of fish will be the stars of the show at a new theme park to be constructed in the Pudong New Area.

Construction of the Shanghai Polar Ocean World will start before the end of the year in Lingang New City, near Dishui Lake, local authorities said.

They did not say when it will open to the public.

The tourist attraction, which claims it will be the biggest of its kind in the world, will have 13 “pavilions,” four performance areas, four cinemas and other facilities, such as hotels and shops.

The wildlife — including polar bears, emperor penguins, dolphins and beluga whales — will do their thing at the polar animal and ocean world zones, while killer whales will perform tricks for the crowds in a large water pool. Other pavilions will be home to sharks, penguins and coral.

The Shanghai Academy of Environmental Sciences, under the Shanghai Environmental Protection Bureau, is soliciting opinion on the theme park’s environmental impact.

I don't think so. None of the Disneyland projects is even close to Disneyworld's size. It has about 43 sq miles, I think.

I wonder if they drew inspiration from the 1920s Fiat factory which had a racetrack on the roof?

Jiading New Town promises development surprises
30 September 2014
Shanghai Daily

CONSTRUCTION of the core area of Jiading New Town will bring more surprises for local citizens over the next three to five years, according to the Jiading New Town Development Company.

Six projects have started construction this year, involving educational facilities and infrastructure. The Shengxin Road Kindergarten will open to the public this year while the bidding for Chengjia School and the construction of China Welfare Institute Kindergarten has begun. The construction of Defu Road Middle School is ongoing, while five more schools will start construction next year.

Meanwhile, Jiading New Town is also improving its road network — eight roads are under construction including Shuangdan Road, and 12 projects including Chongwen Road W and Tianzhu Road are in technical preparation. Huyi Highway which connects many roads is waiting for the approval of municipal authorities.

The water system has been improved as several water landscape projects including the bridges on the Xinqin River and the Gongjia River which were completed in June.

In addition to improvement in hardware, Jiading New Town will also launch some beneficial policies to attract business projects. So far, the town is establishing cooperative relations with enterprises including CITIC Pacific to attract commercial companies, and local authorities will also provide customized services.

Jiading New Town is also making efforts to improve local services. A citizen service center is being planned to provide marriage registration and property transaction service in the future. Elevated tram line is expected to be built in Jiading to make traveling in the district more convenient.

On the former site of Shenma Winery, designers are planning to build the new cultural activity center, community affairs center and information center.

The former Hope Town Industrial Park will be turned into an international residential community with high-end residences, international school, shopping mall and entertainment facilities.

Boiler replacement program off to a great start

Jiading is replacing or renovating 190 boilers and furnaces this year to promote clean energy.

Among the companies, Shanghai Yibiao Electroplating Co Ltd has replaced two 4-ton coal boilers with two 1,440-kilowatt electric boilers.

Officials with Yibiao said the new electronic boilers have a lot of advantages, such as clean energy, low energy cost, high efficiency, low labor cost, good security and long service life.

As one of the pioneers of boiler replacement program in Jiading, Yibiao will get 2.24 million yuan (US$364,896) as a subsidy from the government.

Another two companies, Hailuo Clothing and Totol Food who have completed replacement programs will get a total of 5.15 million yuan from local government.

New soul of Shanghai
20 October 2014
China Daily Excerpt

Renderings from Arup




The city's new concert hall has opened to cheers for its acoustics and architecture. Guest conductor Gustavo Dudamel is a big fan, Zhang Kun reports in Shanghai.

Aconcert hall is like an instrument for an orchestra, Gustavo Dudamel said after leading the debut performance at the new music hall of the Shanghai Symphony last month with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra.

It was the first foreign orchestra to perform at the new music hall, which opened on Sept 6.

The 33-year-old conductor from Venezuela compares the new hall to a Stradivarius violin. Having such a wonderful concert hall of its own, the orchestra will be able to "develop a sound, a personality, a soul", he says.

Japanese acoustician Yasuhisa Toyota, who designed the Shanghai Symphony Music Hall jointly with acclaimed architect Arata Isozaki, also compared the hall to a music instrument, at an earlier soft opening.

"We were not building a house, but making a musical instrument," he says. Toyota promised audiences that "every seat is a golden seat" in the main concert hall for 1,200 people and chamber hall for 400 others.

In order to block out the vibrations and noises from Metro Line 10, which lies within 6 meters, Toyota and Isozaki built the concert hall on 300 base isolators. Known as China's first "floating building", the concert hall actually sits on giant steel springs - the first time the technology has been used in the country.

Isozaki designed two-thirds of the hall's construction below ground level, so that the building is no more than 18 meters at its highest, fitting naturally amid the surrounding buildings and residential compounds dating to the early 20th-century French Concession period.

Metro museum offers fascinating look into future of subway network
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
October 29, 2014


Visitors to the Metro museum look at an interactive map of the city’s subway network. — Yang Yi

SHANGHAI will have 21 subway lines by 2030, including one that will connect Chongming Island to the Pudong New Area, according to a blueprint on show at the new Shanghai Metro Museum.

There are currently 14 Metro lines and one maglev line in operation in the city, which have a combined 567 kilometers of track and 333 stations.

According to the Metro operator, the western section of subway Line 12, the downtown section of Line 13 and third phase of Line 9 are all now under construction.

Preparatory work for lines 14, 15, 17 and 18 is ongoing, all of which will be ready by about 2020. Their opening will extend the city’s subway network to 800 kilometers.

According to the blueprint, Line 19 will start from Rongqiao Road in Pudong, travel under the Yangtze River and onward to Hengsha and Changxing islands, and the Dongtan Resort on Chongming.

Line 20 will run from Xinzhuang station in Minhang District to Gongqing Forest Park, while Line 21 will run from Longwu Road in Xuhui District to Hongkou Football Stadium and provide an interchange to lines 11 and 15.

A new Disney Line will link with Guanglan Road station on line 2 and Zhangjiang Road on Line 13. It should open next year.
