This book is a short guide of architecture in Shanghai. The guide illustrates the architectural and urban landscape solely as an instant photograph and I have tried to refrain from including personal or general comments or opinions. As an architectural guide it contains illustrations of buildings， including photographs， drawings and indications of the location of buildings in the city. Furthermore， texts and photographs are explicative and unbiased in their content and significance. The guide is divided into six itineraries and each itinerary is divided into several sections， one for each building. Each section contains photographs， an exterior view as well as others to illustrate particular details or the interior view， a brief explanation， often a drawing and always the address in both English and Chinese. Each itinerary has a city map showing the location of the buildings illustrated.
