A small shack, primitively built, on the corner of a road in Shanghai, surrounded by high-rise development. Owned by a strong old woman, patronized by night-time drivers.
update: ding zi hu (lit. “nail house”): person or household who refuses to move and bargains for unreasonably high compensation when the land is requisitioned for a construction project.
[Update: For more on the ongoing nailhouse incident in Chongqing see here and here.]
