Shanghai Transforming is a study of the city of Shanghai, a city that is, at present, in the middle of a deep transformation in its physical structure that affects strongly the way its inhabitants use the city. The grand scale of the changes taking place in Shanghai and its almost unlimited possibilities mark this city as a future historical reference point in architecture and urbanism.

The book includes essays by Robert Venturi, Denise Scott Brown, Sharon Haar, Peter G. Rowe, Saskia Sassen, Haolun Shu, Juan de Dios Perez, Greg Girard, Jonathan Miller, Silas Chiow, Xiangning Li, Xiaochun Zhang, Weigang Qiu, Sol Madridejos, Juan Carlos Sancho, and Philip Enquist.

Research for Shanghai Transforming was made possible by the Ruy de Clavijo 2006 grant, awarded by Casa Asia, Barcelona, Spain. Additional funding was provided by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP Chicago.
