In this final interview from our series of Dezeen Talks filmed at the Inside awards in Barcelona, Dezeen editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs talks to Lyndon Neri of Neri&Hu about his restaurant design within the Waterhouse at South Bund hotel in Shanghai, where cut-outs in the ceiling mean diners can look up into the bedrooms above.

In this movie he talks about the importance of the private dining room in Chinese culture and how his design challenges this idea. He continues his discusion of the Chinese attitude to restoration and recycling and how Shanghai is becoming a centre for new culture.
