Books Info:

Shanghai Style free pdf Once a fishing town nestled on the banks of the Yangtze River Delta on the east cost of China, Shanghai is now the country's largest city and one of the world's busiest ports. The city has been the cultural and economic center of eastern Asia for over a century and has become synonymous with all that is modern in China. This book adventures through Shanghai, giving readers a cross-section of the city's loveliest and most exceptional interiors, such as a penthouse loft in a converted hardware factory with a rooftop greenhouse, controversial writer/superstar Mian Mian's conceptual "art apartment," the painstakingly restored "dream house" of a French archaeologist in the French Concession, and the sprawling, flamboyant apartment of art world diva Pearl Lam.
