Abstract: 

The thesis presents the opportunity to rethink approaches to large-parcel
redevelopment in Shanghai. At issue is not only the mixing of uses (in particular
office and residential) but the integration of existing and new buildings. These
topics are explored through a proposal for the redevelopment of an abandoned,
20-acre industrial site along the Suzhou Creek. Using design as a form of
research, the thesis proposes a new, integrated approach to redevelopment – one
that embraces density while honoring the city’s vanishing industrial heritage.
