The Furniture Exhibition Shanghai, 2010 And The Visit To One Special Place In Shanghai

2010年09月24日 留下评论

I was staying in Shanghai from 9th to 11th this month. I went to attend the Furniture Exhibition Shanghai, 2010 at the International Exhibition Center on Longyang Road, Pudong. It was so convenient that you could take on the bus there during the days of the exhibition at the exit of the Longyang subway station. I went there on the third day but the majority of the team went there the day before. So the main time in the center I was staying at the spot of the stall of the factory cooperated with our lab in Anji. That is the difference from the day in the same exhibition last year. You can see the photos taken last year in my photo folder and the address link is: “2009年9月上海家具展”. I only went to see few of the other booths one of which was Lianyou Office Chair, whose chairs were shown in the photos as follows. The main innovative structure is the design of the chassis of the office chairs which combines with the seatpan into one whole chair. You can see two photos above in detail.

After the exhibition I stayed in Shanghai for another day. Two of my senior middle school classmates and I gathered together at noon on that Saturday near Xujiahui. We had the lunch in a restaurant on one secret street in Xuhui District. The spot including that street is one special place in Shanghai. Many people even some native residents do not know that place exactly. It includes many one-way streets with many old trees along the two sides of the streets and many old houses and western style buildings. The environment there is so good and keeps quiet in a noisy neighborhood. There are not many pedestrians and cars on the streets and Shanghai Library is not far away. One of my classmates later at that afternoon took me to have a look there and I took some photos in one old yard where the biggest capitalist Rong Desheng lived before liberation. Now the buildings in the yard are changed into the Children’s Palace of Xuhui District. And there are many stories about the special place in Shanghai.

Visiting Shanghai’s Historic Bund More Than Two Months Ago

2010年09月23日 留下评论

There might be so long about more than one month that I did not update my Live Spaces space. Today is the day after the Middle-Autumn Festival this year. And although there are three days for free in this holiday, I do not go out to any places and only stay at the dorm. I think there are several and even more important things that I would do in this holiday and even in the next holiday of the National Day. I seldom used my camera after I bought it about four months ago. After that I still went to some places to take some photos including the pictures put out on the last entry. So later I would like to put out some more of them which I took at some other places. In this entry, I would some something about the common visiting place of Shanghai – Shanghai Bund.

Let us first know this place from the introduction of Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Shanghai Bund is an area of Huangpu District in central Shanghai, People’s Republic of China. The area centers on a section of Zhongshan Road (East-1 Zhongshan Road) within the former Shanghai International Settlement, which runs along the western bank of the Huangpu River, facing Pudong, in the eastern part of Huangpu District. The Bund usually refers to the buildings and wharves on this section of the road, as well as some adjacent areas. The Bund is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Shanghai. Building heights are restricted in this area. The Bund houses 52 buildings of various architectural styles such as Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Neo-Classical, Beaux-Arts, and Art Deco (Shanghai has one of the richest collections of Art Deco architectures in the world). To see the detailed information of this place, please see this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Bund.

On July 5th, I went to Shanghai to register for the QEPA, where is so near to the Bund. So after I had done the task early in the afternoon, I walked to West Nanjing Road and the Bund to see the sight there. I saw the revitalization of historic districts through rehabilitation of historic buildings on the Bund.
