Urban art season for former shipyard
April 18, 2019
One of Shanghai's oldest shipyards will open to the public for the first time in September along with a nearby century-old textile warehouse for a two-month exhibition.
The relocation of Shanghai Shipyard has left a large number of facilities such as two major shipyards, crane towers, conveyor belts, gear wheels and pipelines at its original site on the Huangpu River waterfront in Yangpu District.
China’s first 10,000-ton ship, the Shaoxing, was built there in 1978 and the nation’s first oil drilling platform was built there in 1984. The platform is still operational.
