Travel to China: Shanghai: the New Chinese City: Photo 3
The Plaza 66 mall, Nanjing Xilu's fanciest. It comes with two highrises that might have overwhelmed the street. Here's how the designers, Frank C.Y. Feng and associates, explain their solution. Hope you don't mind architect-speak. "The solution arranges a series of near-primary, radially derived volumes (lozenge, cone, almond and arc) in the manner of a collage. They are bound together by a five-storey podium, but each one establishes its own entry and formal independence by coming cleanly down to the ground." I'd rather shop.
