Efficiency! The production team here in Shanghai is spot on. The exhibition was set up with hardly a hiccup. White gloves, labeling, floor plans and more labeling. Great stuff.

It’s a small world after all

Managed to catch up with an old school friend, Mark, (and his backpack buddy Neil) after we flew into Shanghai on the same day! Who would have thought it? I haven’t seen Mark since Sixth Form. So great to see a friendly face.

The Bund

Shanghai’s Southbank. Yes, these boats are equipped with video billboards – it’s like Bladerunner.

Me and Milly took on Shanghai’s shopping district on an exciting nappy hunt. If being blonde, fair skinned and looking like a doll wasn’t such a rarity here, I’m sure we would have taken half the time. Everyone wants to take photographs of us – I thought we were the tourists here?

A room with a view?

China is crazy! This city is vast. Just got back from our welcome meal with the British Council team. Yummy, delicious and… interesting food. Jellyfish: tastes good, feels like skinny, boney slug. Odd

The scale of the city is certainly impressive and construction work seems to continue through the night. Disconcerting amount of smog and a worrying juxtaposition of poverty and wealth. For more photos go here.

Off to Shanghai with the British Council, China

A few months ago the [re]design team were commissioned to curate an exhibition for the British Council: Climate Cool By Design. It’s a touring exhibition, showcasing the very best in British sustainable design. Today I’m traveling to Shanghai with Sarah Johnson, Jason Allcorn and Milly (the little Maker) to oversea proceedings. It’s only a thirteen hour flight!
