Urban Planning Exhibition Hall

Yesterday, we headed to the Urban Planning Exhibition Hall, Shanghai's urban planning museum. It was a dreary day outside, so a perfect day to be inside a museum. Highlights from the five-story museum included an exhibit on the upcoming World Expo (Shanghai is hosting it starting in May), including a model of the site - the red building pictured above will be China's expo hall; a huge model of the city, as it's projected to look in 2020, which took up most of the third floor; and a fifth-floor view of surrounding Renmin Park and city skyscrapers. More pictures here:

  1. Now I'm really worried we're going to get lost in Shanghai. These pictures are scary--but beautiful.
