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.

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!
