They say it’s more difficult to restore an old building than it is to demolish it and build a new one. This was the inclination of the postmodernists, with their focus on deconstructing systems, language, and the rest of the glue that holds our fragile world together. If it’s not good, then it’s goodbye. If it resembles power, then there’s no place for it here in this world of continuous PoMo revolution. Full stop. Restoration in the face of what’s easy is how you beat this tiring and tireless process of constant renewal. Newer and bigger are not always better. Sometimes it is better to salvage what’s salvageable than to throw away the comfort and the warmth of memories past. Zhang Ming, the lead architect in charge of the 2011-2016 restoration of the Majestic Theatre, remembered watching films there as a student in the 1940’s. With those memories, she was able to spearhead the daunting task of the renovation of the broken, practically abandoned theatre. Her team was able to breathe new life into a Shanghai cultural icon, giving new meaning and context to a space ravaged by time and circumstance.
