Take a Tour Inside Shanghai's Cultural Hotspot

Take a walk through the Hub Performance and Exhibition Center, designed by Neri&Hu Design and Research Office, in the dynamic Hongqiao District of Shanghai, China. The video, produced with Pedro Pegenaute, showcases the Center's nature-inspired interior, featuring dramatic lighting and views framed by walnut- and oak-covered aluminum branches recalling forest canopies.

The interior concept draws inspiration from landscape, said architects Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu, creating a retreat from the heavily built context and visual overload of contemporary culture.

The Performance and Exhibition Center is the centerpiece of the Hub, a mixed-use commercial development planned to span 250,000 square meters. Directly connected to the Hongqiao Transportation Hub, the Center is the new epicenter of art and culture of Shanghai’s expansion.
