Sinan Mansions-2019

TimeOut has a new article about the cluster of old villas on former Rue Massenet, now known as the Sinan Mansions, which uses some of my photos and research.

And here is an older feature written after a sobering encounter with Shanghai-style heritage management: Part 1 and Part 2. Also, here is a map from around 1920 snatched from the redevelopment office of Hotel Massenet.
