Shanghai | Inside the Embankment

Embankment Building | Shanghai, May 3, 2012

While living in the Embankment building [河滨大楼] in Shanghai 上海 we are constantly amazed by how well this building, completed in 1933, functions, not only architecturally, but also socially and collectively. So we went on a research, to know more by not leaving it, and discovered a history of Jewish migration to Shanghai, four sisters and film studios moving into the building. We found stories of obsessions and renovations, we strolled through its corridors and searched for anything connected to what was once the largest apartment building in the Far East.
