Zhongxin Wanghai, June 6 (Reporter Xu Jing) "The waterfront industrial heritage should be a shared urban landscape. Zhu Yichen, assistant professor at Tongji University's School of Architecture and Urban Planning, said.

The book activity "Suzhou Creek Industrial Heritage: As a Shared Urban Landscape - "Sharing the Waterfront: Chronicle of Industrial Heritage on Both Sides of Suzhou Creek" jointly sponsored by Tongji University Press and Changning District Library was held in Changning District Library Tianshan Pavilion on the 3rd. As the author of the book "Sharing the Waterfront: Chronicle of the Industrial Heritage on Both Sides of Suzhou Creek", Zhu Yichen proposed that "sharing" is the development trend of urban waterfront space in the 21st century on the basis of systematically combing the development history of both sides of Suzhou Creek, and that waterfront industrial heritage can enhance the overall public value through various modes such as sharing by the whole people, transfer sharing, and group sharing.

Urban spatial resources are high-quality and precious social resources. The waterfront industrial heritage is not only the genetic carrier of urban culture, but also occupies a large number of high-quality waterfront spaces in the city. From the prosperity of "warehouses and factories" to the suspension of production, relocation, and the protection and utilization of industrial heritage, Shanghai Suzhou Creekside has undergone earth-shaking changes in the development process of more than 100 years.

Zhu Yichen said, "Today, when the protection of industrial heritage has become a consensus, how to further transform closed and isolated industrial production sites into a living shoreline shared by all citizens is a common challenge for urban development and heritage protection, which is also the first driving force for the writing of this book." ”

In Zhu Yichen's view, Shanghai's shoreline has changed from an economic shoreline to a landscape shoreline; From the closed shoreline monopolized by factories, warehouses, docks, and units, to the private shoreline owned by some groups led by developers, to the shoreline that is open to the whole people under the leadership of today's government; This not only reflects the spatial form changes brought about by the evolution of planning and design ideas and urban concepts, but also the social spatial evolution under the transformation of production relations.

She further explained that the essence of sharing is not the owner's interest, but whether the space is best for "public use". She also proposes five core dimensions of evaluation sharing—diachronic nature, permeability, timesharing, plurality and routineness. Through a more systematic spatial renewal design, the shared urban landscape is taken as the goal of Suzhou Creek renewal, and the balance between heritage protection and urban development is realized, so that the Suzhou Creek can truly become a "shared waterfront" accessible to everyone, open all the time, and used by different people around the clock, "which is also a possibility for the protection and utilization of urban heritage in the future".

Li Zhenyu, tenured professor of the School of Architecture and Urban Planning of Tongji University, said that Shanghai's development is inseparable from modern industrial civilization, and the current renewal and transformation of "factories in the city" requires new wisdom, new methods and new perspectives of the whole society to adapt to the changes of the city at different stages of development. Industrial heritage should give more ordinary people the opportunity to walk in and become a space for communities and cities.

Deng Yaoxue, an expert and researcher of Shanghai Construction Bid Evaluation, and Yu Haize, professor of the School of Social Development and Public Policy of Fudan University and editor-in-chief of the "Shanghai Chronicle from the Perspective of Social Space", shared the history and process of the development of Suzhou Creek from the industrial shoreline to the landscape shoreline from their respective professional perspectives, led readers to perceive and understand social changes through the changes of waterfront space, and put forward visions and suggestions on how to promote more sharing of waterfront social space.

"Shared Waterfront: Chronicle of Industrial Heritage on Both Sides of Suzhou Creek" focuses on the renewal of industrial heritage on both sides of Suzhou Creek in Shanghai, starting from the phenomenon and trend of sharing as the use and perception of urban space, taking the industrial heritage of Suzhou Creek as the object of spatial research, discussing the dynamics of the spatial transformation of waterfront industrial heritage from the perspective of social space, and finally proposing a design method based on sharing.

This book is the fifth book in the "Shanghai Chronicle from the Perspective of Social Space" by Tongji University Press, which is based on the historical classics of Shanghai studies and focuses on today's Shanghai, whether it is a workers' new village, a commercial street, a creative park, or an entertainment space, a riverside shoreline, and a lane world, etc., all strive to write the spring and autumn of contemporary Shanghai with history (chronicle) as the scripture, place (social space) as the latitude, historical awareness and spatial sensitivity. He has previously published Shanghai: From Town to Trade Port (1074-1858).

It is understood that Tongji University Press and Changning District Library jointly planned a series of reading activities "Shanghai Walk: History and Renewal", and the day's activities were the second in a series of reading activities. This series of activities aims to build a communication platform between academia, industry and the general public, so that everyone has the opportunity to understand Shanghai's urban history and culture, urban development and change process, and current urban hot topics from different aspects, so as to bring a richer, broader and more diversified urban reading perspective.
