Abstract [en]

Shanghaiis one of the cities that are often considered to be have lost identity in globalization. Importing foreign architecture since 1978 is believed by some experts a key causal factor. According to the critical regionalism identifying typical lifestyle patterns like cooking can be a starting point to find a city identity ofShanghai. This essay is aimed at testing this method. It is approached by learning how cooking influences on architecture (building, street and urban fabric) in ancient, modern, and contemporary times through three relations: cooking and kitchen, kitchen and façade, kitchen and street/urban fabric.

 

The initial hypotheses of this master thesis were that first importing of foreign architecture causesShanghailost identity; second foreign architecture especially residential buildings are hard to adapt to local life without understanding lifestyle; and third cooking as a typical lifestyle pattern can helpShanghaifind her character. However, research results show that technique today can offset most of the constraints brought by traditional cooking. Thus, the conclusion of this paper is that influence of cooking on architecture is limited, and to find urban identity should depend on architects’ and stakeholders’ awareness.
