The pinnacle of heritage protection

Shanghai Concert Hall Founded in 1930, the 1,500-seat concert hall was known as the most luxurious cinema in Shanghai. It featured a classic European design that was fashioned by Chinese architect Fan Wenzhao. In 2003, the concert hall was moved southeast-ward by 66.46 meters and elevated by 3.38 meters, a record highest in relocation endeavors in China at that time, to make space for an elevated highway. The concert hall underwent protective refurbishment after this historical move, including upgrades to its acoustic system. Today, the concert hall remains one of the music venues in the city with the best acoustic effects.
