Thanh phơi quần áo rợp trời Thượng Hải có nên thành di sản?

những chiếc thanh phơi quần áo rợp trời Thượng Hải khiến nhiều người suy nghĩ. 


Newcomers to Shanghai might be taken aback (ngạc nhiên) when they first see the large clothes-drying racks (giá phơi quần áo) that jut out from the sides of high-rise apartment blocks (tòa nhà chung cư), particularly in older residential communities (cộng đồng dân cư). Filled with brightly colored items, these racks can often resemble (giống) the flags fluttering outside a United Nations building.

It’s a simple design: A fixed (cố định) rectangular (hình hộp chữ nhật) frame about 3 meters by 2 meters stretches from a balcony (ban công) or window; the clothes are arranged on long poles, which are then carefully balanced on the frame. The poles — traditionally bamboo, but now mostly made of steel — can be long enough to dry three or four bed sheets at once. For Shanghai people, who are known to prefer efficiency (hiệu quả), that’s better than even a tumble dryer.

...In the runup to the 2010 Shanghai Expo, the city government deemed these ubiquitous drying racks eyesores (mất mỹ quan) that risked soiling Shanghai’s image as a modern metropolis, and decided to ban residents from hanging laundry outside windows on many main roads. However, some locals argue that this age-old practice should be regarded as intangible (phi vật thể) cultural heritage.
