Sinan Books Poetry Store, Shanghai

The architects imagined the largest professional poetry bookstore in Shanghai with the concept of ‘church in church’, using 45 tons of steel shelves and blue film on the windows in the historic site of the former orthodox St. Nicholas Church, built in 1932.
A balcony was transformed into a golden pulpit: here you can see how the steel bookstore and the old masonry are interwoven without touching.
