The architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partners are taking part in the 2013 West Bund biennial festival in Shanghai by entering three of their projects. At their stand they are presenting – in text, image and film – buildings that reflect part of their wide-ranging oeuvre: the Poly Plaza office building in Shanghai, the Shanghai Oriental Sports Centre (SOSC) swimming complex and the Tianjin Grand Theatre concert hall.

About 100 artists and architects are taking part in the exhibition of modern architecture and contemporary art, among them international practices such as David Chipperfield, Herzog & de Meuron and OMA.

The exhibition takes place in a converted silo on a former industrial site adjacent to the Huangpu River – in the direct proximity of the Shanghai Oriental Sports Centre.
