“Tingzijian” is the name of a small room located at the turn of the staircase in a building. It usually faces the north, so the small room would be cold in the winter and hot in the summer. House owners used to rent them out for extra income.
During the 1920s and 1930s, many highly educated people and artists came to Shanghai to escape social and political unrest in other parts of China. Many of them were single and Tingzijian was to them a cheap, convenient form of accommodation.
In my opinion, this microsite is like a “TingZiJian” in the UK which brings the original culture of Shanghai into London. Accordingly i adapted the word “TingziJian” for the name of this micro webiste to show the culture and originality of Shanghai.
