so moving

Location over Site? 2 examples of moving constructions in Shanghai, China.

In 2004, the old Concert Hall was moved 66 metres southeast to avoid noise and pollution coming from a nearby highway, towards its present location in the quieter middle of the block.

Currently, the former Qiu Mansion, struggling to survive to surrounding demolitions, will be moved 57 metres south, turning into a commercial hub towards the façade line of a busy street.

Puzzling the city….
