Across the river, you find TANK Shanghai, a groundbreaking and multifunctional art centre where the public can get close to art and architecture. It is a non-profit art institution founded by renowned contemporary art collector Qiao Zhibing. The five tanks belonged to Shanghai Longhua Airport, one of the first airports in China (decommissioned in 1966). The interior of the tanks is spacious, with a height of more than 15 meters, and features an industrial dome and curved circumference. It is an art ecology that combines various exhibition spaces, parks, green spaces, plazas, river views and cafes, and is a vibrant art and cultural landmark in Shanghai.
