Shanghai City Planning Exhibition Hall
Shanghai City Planning Exhibition Hall is situated in the east of the City Hall. There are four giant steel caps on top of the building, symbolizing the city flower- the magnolia. Glittering in the sunlight, the steel caps offset the crystal palace-like Grand Theater by its side. The building is at a height of 43.3 meters, with 5 stories above ground and 2 stories underground and a total floor space of 18,393 square meters. On one hand, it is available for citizens to comprehend the changes in the city and its future planning from this City Planning Exhibition Hall. On the other hand, it also introduces the planning and construction of Shanghai to visitors. It helps to set Shanghai's image as an international metropolis open to the outside world.
