Robert Fan, or Fan Wenzhou, designed this apartment building at 2 Yongfu Road between Wu Yuan and Fu Xing roads in Shanghai's French Quarter. My Dad, who lived here between 1932 and 1941, when he was 2 to 11, calls it the Bauhaus apartment building, for its straight lines and concrete block look, but others say it is more Art Deco.
