Built in 1959, the original West Shanghai Workers’ Cultural Palace occupies a prominent site in the centre of Shanghai, serving the union workers and local community as a popular cultural centre for the last five decades. The new scheme preserves, expands and transforms an existing park on the site into an inviting 6-hectare public space around a central lake.
