1933 Old Millfun, Shanghai

4.1
A raw concrete modernist structure, 1933 Old Millfun once operated as Shanghai’s cattle slaughterhouse, now serving as an industrial park space. Surrounded by roads and water, this five-story art deco building with a brutalist feel was designed by a British architect in 1933. Feel a chill run down your spine as you examine the building's huge gutters and bridges, which were used to transport the unfortunate animals across large halls and maze-like spiral galleries. Transformed into an exhibition space, the building now hosts fashion shows, concerts, and press conferences, and is also used as a conference hall.

  • Interesting and convoluted building. Was a pig slaughter house at one point. Lots of ramps probably used to conduct the pigs to their last destination. Now a cultural, artistic and comercial space.  more »
  • It's a great place to visit! It's worth it to go with 35 friends and make a lot of great pictures. Because I am on a business trip, time is not enough, otherwise I really want to stay for a while!

  • It was a slaughterhouse, and it turned out to be the center of cultural Creativity today, and the bare cement-like Earth was telling the history of the changes, the big TV complex were more than just the scene.

Where to stay in Shanghai

As one of China's top commercial cities and tourist destinations, Shanghai offers accommodations that range from backpacker-friendly haunts to five-star hotels in futuristic skyscrapers. Few world cities can rival Shanghai in terms of room variety, services, and prices, and all types of travelers can easily find suitable options based on their preference and budget limitations. Puxi and Pudong remain probably the best options for most foreign visitors, as these areas offer both modern hotels packed with amenities and older establishments loaded with traditional charm.
