industrial space in Shanghai's central area has been largely relocated and abandoned,
resulting in many urban problems. At the same time in the context of the urban
regeneration of Shanghai, the land structure and industrial structure are being adjusted,

Therefore, the design research on riverside industrial space regenerating from the
"production waterfront" to "livable waterfront" is urgently needed and it is an important
