Do Not Settle
"We want people to appreciate the city from a new point of view."
In Do Not Settle from PechaKucha Night Breda Vol. 12, the photographic research study by Wahyu Pramoto and Kris Provoost captures the ever-changing megacity of Shanghai from a new angle. Rooftops have long been inaccessible and neglected usually only used as a place to store mechanical equipment, however these platform open up a new opportunity to study the rapid change happening in this world financial hub.
The observations show the rich history of Shanghai’s urbanism and reveals the unfair fight currently happening where Shanghai’s heritage is losing against the overpowering pressure of the shiny skyscrapers.
