Lujiazhui Weekender WalkLeader: Spencer Dodington
The Deng Xiao Ping Era
Each month, the RAS will focus on a particularly topic for our events; November being Deng Xiao Ping.
Using a quote from our book selection “The (structural) changes that took place under Deng’s leadership rank among the most basic changes since the Chinese empire took shape during the Han Dynasty more than two millennium ago.” (Ezra Vogel)
On this special Deng-themed walk we will explore this new central business area called Lujiazui. The highlights of this tour are the skyscrapers themselves: who designed and paid for them, and which interiors are the most interesting to visit. Of course the plan of the space is important too – and the success it has been for Shanghai.
Priority will be given to RAS members and tour attendees will be limited to 15 persons.
Meeting point – 1/F Super Brand Mall (Exact location to be provided with confirmed reservation)
