Project will complete buildings after 100 years
David Chipperfield has won an international competition to redevelop Shanghai’s old city hall.
The project will involve the completion of the final wing almost 100 years after work ground to a halt because of material shortages caused by the First World War. This will frame a large central public courtyard.
Only two-thirds of the Shanghai Municipal Council Building (SMCB) was finished when work stopped in 1922.
