This wonderful building is the former Rong Family Villa in Shanghai. It has recently been repainted is definitely one of the best buildings I saw in Shanghai. It is now used as a Children's Palace which is a space used by schoolchildren who are members of the Young Pioneers go to study extra subjects.
And, by the way, if you don't know about Shanghai Art Deco you should check out the Shanghai Art Deco Facebook page which is the official page for the World Congress on Art Deco to be held in Shanghai in 2015.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
