Abstract (in English)

The Huangpu River is known as Shanghai’s mother river. The extensive distribution of industrial heritage sites along both banks of the river has not only great significance in the history of the city’s industrial development, but also a profound impact on its urban landscape and cultural character. This paper provides an overview of the evolution and characteristics of industrial heritage along the river and measures adopted in Shanghai for their preservation and reuse.
