Fotografiska
Shanghai

As one of the most vibrant and trendsetting cities in Asia, boosted by the establishment of creative industries across fashion, arts and design, Shanghai will be Fotografiska’s first Asian location. The museum will open near the recently rejuvenated and rapidly developing Suzhou Creek area. The centrally-located neighborhood features a newly constructed pedestrian promenade alongside the river, an influx of incoming commercial, residential, and cultural residents, and new museums opening within a 1km radius of the future Fotografiska site.

Fotografiska Shanghai will be located in one of four historical warehouses built in the early 20th century as a connecting point between international settlements and the city of Suzhou. These depots provided Shanghai with staples and fresh products brought in by boat through the dense network of inland river canals.

The classified historical landmark building adopts the period’s industrial design, and features two magnificent staircases which will be focal points of the site. The warehouse provides four floors and 50k ft2 (4,637 m2) of space for exhibitions, indoor and outdoor event venues, a concept store, and a restaurant and lounge bar overlooking the river and the famous Sihang Warehouse nearby. The design is led by Neri & Hu - an award-winning inter-disciplinary architectural design practice based in Shanghai and famous for designing many of the city’s landmark venues.

Fotografiska Shanghai is set to open Fall of 2022.
