Fengxian to welcome new landmarks this year

Jan 9, 2019

Several of Fengxian's new landmarks with international top designs are set to open this year, offering urban landscape as well as more facilities for district residents.

The Nine Tree Shanghai Future Art Center, covering 120,000 square meters to the south of Fengpu Avenue and China's first theater in the forest, is about to complete the decoration work for its multi-function theater and semi-open theme theater.

It is estimated to finish construction and be put to use by the end of August. The south extension of Metro Line 5, which was launched recently, will bring the destination closer to visitors.

Designed by French architect Frederic Rolland, the structure is aligned with the forest, nature, the city and its water network. Meanwhile, it uses glass walls to give the best view from within.

The Fengxian City Museum sitting in the newly developed scenic spot "Shanghai Fish" will open in May.

The 20,000-square-meter project has the northern part focusing on science and technology while the southern part, dealing with comprehensive content, will be an important archive to tell the district's history and development plans.

Much-feted Japanese architect Sou Fujimoto has put in much effort as the building takes shape; when open it will connect with the lake and a public leisure space.
