PLANNING & MIXED USE

WEST SHANGHAI WORKERS’ CULTURAL PALACE

SHANGHAI, CHINA

The original Shanghai Workers’ Cultural Palace was established in 1950 as a place to provide cultural learning and recreational activities for workers. Over the course of its existence, the Workers’ Cultural Palace has evolved to meet the ever changing times. With today’s more diversified culture, and technology driven workforce, the current Workers’ Cultural Palace space cannot adapt to current needs. The Shanghai Federation of Trade Unions (SFOTU) asked HHCP to master plan and design the new West Shanghai Workers’ Cultural Palace, preserving the Shanghai Workers’ historic movement and spirit, as well as representing the new look and image of today’s contemporary worker.

 

HHCP’s master plan promotes SFOTU’s desire for the West Shanghai Workers’ Cultural Palace to be the “City’s Green Gateway” with its stylized tree silhouette. HHCP has chosen this meaningful form to commemorate the history, strength and growth of the Shanghai Federation of Trade Unions. The new master plan boasts and expanded 1.44 hectares public Green Park, a 10 meter wide pedestrian public easement, and six central water related areas providing a unified relationship for the project’s identity and its distinctive functionality zones.

 

The modern architecture and open spaces between the buildings provides a variety of passive and active experiences, and features both traditional and innovative recreational opportunities. Architectural components include, a Visual Culture & Commercial Center, Exhibition & Creative Leaning Center, SFOTU History Museum, Icon Office Tower, Exchange & Training Center, Sports & Recreation Center, and the Island Tea House.
