The Bund , located by the bank of the Huangpu River , is home to a row of early 20th-century architecture, ranging in style from the neoclassical HSBC Building to the art deco Sassoon House. Many areas in the former foreign concessions are also well-preserved, the most notable being the French Concession. Shanghai has one of the world's largest number of Art Deco buildings as a result of the construction boom during the s and s.

The Bund's first revitalization started in , with a new promenade by the Dutch Architect Paulus Snoeren, and was completed in the mids. In recent years, a great deal of architecturally distinctive and even eccentric buildings have sprung up throughout Shanghai. Despite rampant redevelopment, the old city still retains some traditional architecture and designs, such as the Yuyuan Garden , an elaborate traditional garden in the Jiangnan style.

The entrance to each alley is usually surmounted by a stylistic stone arch. The whole resembles terrace houses or townhouses commonly seen in Anglo-American countries, but distinguished by the tall, heavy brick wall in front of each house.

The name "shikumen" means "stone storage door", referring to the strong gateway to each house. The shikumen is a cultural blend of elements found in Western architecture with traditional Lower Yangtze Jiangnan Chinese architecture and social behavior.

All traditional Chinese dwellings had a courtyard, and the shikumen was no exception. Yet, to compromise with its urban nature, it was much smaller and provided an "interior haven" to the commotions in the streets, allowing for raindrops to fall and vegetation to grow freely within a residence.

The courtyard also allowed sunlight and adequate ventilation into the rooms. Less than Beijing, the city also has some examples of Soviet neoclassical architecture or Stalinist architecture. These buildings were mostly erected during the period from the founding of the People's Republic in until the Sino-Soviet Split in the late s. During this decade, large numbers of Soviet experts, including architects, poured into China to aid the country in the construction of a communist state.

Examples of Soviet neoclassical architecture in Shanghai include what is today the Shanghai Exhibition Centre. The Pudong district of Shanghai is home to a number of skyscrapers, many of which rank among the tallest in the world.

It was in Shanghai, for example, that the first motor car was driven and technically the first train tracks and modern sewers were laid.

In the past years Shanghai has been widely recognized as a new influence and inspiration for cyberpunk culture. The vernacular language spoken in the city is Shanghainese , a dialect of the Taihu Wu subgroup of the Wu Chinese family. This makes it a different language from the official language nationwide, which is Mandarin , itself completely mutually unintelligible with Wu Chinese.

Most Shanghai residents are the descendants of immigrants from the two adjacent provinces of Jiangsu and Zhejiang who moved to Shanghai in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The population of those regions speak different Wu Chinese dialects. From the s, many migrants outside of the Wu-speaking region have come to Shanghai for work and education.

They often cannot speak or learn the local language and therefore use Mandarin as a lingua franca. Modern Shanghainese is based on different dialects of Taihu Wu: Suzhounese , Ningbonese and dialects of Shanghai's traditional areas now lying within the Hongkou, Baoshan and Pudong districts.

The prestige dialect of Wu Chinese is spoken within the city of Shanghai prior to its modern expansion. The prevalence of Mandarin fluency is generally higher for those born after than those born before, while the prevalence of English fluency is higher for people who received their secondary and tertiary education before than those who did so after and before the s.

On the other hand, however, Shanghainese started to decline and fluency amongst young speakers weakened, as Mandarin and English are being favoured and taught over the native language.

In recent years though, there have been movements within the city to protect and promote the local language from ever fading out.

Cultural curation in Shanghai has seen significant growth since , with several new museums having been opened in the city. The Rockbund Art Museum is also in Shanghai. There are also many art galleries, concentrated in the M50 Art District and Tianzifang. Shanghai is also home to one of China's largest aquariums, the Shanghai Ocean Aquarium.

Shanghai was the birthplace of Chinese cinema [] and theater. These two films were very influential, and established Shanghai as the center of Chinese film-making. The exile of Shanghainese filmmakers and actors as a result of the Second Sino-Japanese War and the Communist revolution contributed enormously to the development of the Hong Kong film industry.

Many aspects of Shanghainese popular culture "Shanghainese Pops" were transferred to Hong Kong by the numerous Shanghainese emigrants and refugees after the Communist Revolution. The movie In the Mood for Love , which was directed by Wong Kar-wai a native Shanghainese himself , depicts a slice of the displaced Shanghainese community in Hong Kong [] and the nostalgia for that era, featuring s music by Zhou Xuan. The " Shanghai School " was an important Chinese school of traditional arts during the Qing Dynasty and the 20th century.

Under the masters from this school, traditional Chinese art developed into the modern style of " Chinese painting ". Members of this school were themselves educated literati who had come to question their very status and the purpose of art and had anticipated the impending modernization of Chinese society.

In an era of rapid social change, works from the Shanghai School were widely innovative and diverse and often contained thoughtful yet subtle social commentary. They argued that Shanghai School literature was merely commercial and therefore did not advance social progress.
