Always Building in Shanghai

Construction is a 24-hour story in Shanghai. Roads get a fresh surface, buildings are torn down and new, even uglier, complexes are build.

My building is from 1996 but it looks like it was hip in the fifties. The old houses opposite my building will be pulled down in the near future. Although on the one hand understandable as sharing the toilet and the bathroom is one of the perks of living there, the sad thing will be their replacements.

Maybe the current buildings are a bit of a mess but these small neighbourhoods are at least full of life. I intend to keep track of the
speed of building in my area by making photo’s every now and then.
