Abstract (in English)

Industrial heritage has been given unprecedented attention in the process of urban renewal and development in China's cities, as their urban functions and spatial structures have undergone transformation. This paper provides an overview of the industrial heritage in Shanghai – the distribution and classification of heritage sites, as well as work progress and issues in their preservation and reuse. The paper argues that as Chinese cities are still initial stages of preservation and reuse of industrial heritage, reuse strategies and models best suited for the unique conditions of industrial heritage in China need be further developed, so as to guide scientific efforts in extending the life, and enable multifaceted use, of heritage sites.

Avec les fortes transformations des fonctions et des structures urbaines de la ville, le patrimoine industriel fait l`objet d`un intérêt sans précèdent dans le processus de rénovation urbaine et dans le développement des villes chinoises. Ce document donne un aperçu exhaustif du patrimoine industriel de Shanghai, en termes de distribution et de classification des sites du patrimoine, de calendrier des chantiers, de leur préservation et réutilisation. Ce document fait valoir que les villes Chinoises sont au commencement d`une étape de préservation et de réutilisation du patrimoine industriel. Les stratégies de reconversion en Chine méritent d'être davantage développées, afin de guider les efforts scientifiques et de valoriser la pérennité des actions de reconversion vers des utilisations multiples et exemplaires du patrimoine industriel Chinois.
