1933 Old Millfun, Shanghai

4.0
Architectural Building · Tourist Spot
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.
