14 Shanghai architecture studios photographed by Marc Goodwin

The latest series of images by photographer Marc Goodwin offers a look inside 14 Shanghai-based architecture studios, belonging to firms including Neri & HuArchi-Union Architects and David Chipperfield Architects.

Marc Goodwin has visited studios in numerous countries, as part of his ongoing project to reveal the workplaces of all of the world's big-name architects.

Following series in ParisLondon, Beijing and the Nordic countries, the photographer visited a range of studios in China's biggest city.

The 14 revealed in this series include locally based practices such as More Architecture and Aim Architecture, as well as the Chinese offices of big international firms like Schmidt Hammer Lassen and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners.

The resulting images reveal a diverse range of building types, including an old personal training studio, a former metalwork factory and a space behind an aircraft repair station.

For instance, local studio Linehouse occupies a former marketplace, featuring wooden flooring and a shelving unit that spans an entire wall. Meanwhile, Neri&Hu's 100 employees work in in a more traditional office space that is entered via a large concrete staircase.
