The Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center is located on People’s Square, adjacent to the city’s municipal government building.
The Exhibition Center is a 6 story building, with two basement levels, which displays Shanghai ‘s urban planning and development. Exhibitions include models of planned and recent developments, as well as Shanghai ‘s history. The centrepiece of the exhibition is a huge scale model of the city of Shanghai, showing all existing and approved buildings. Visitors can view the model at “ground level”, or ascend a gallery running around it for views from above.
The model is intended to represent the entire city, including all planned developments. However, a few stout pillars, necessitated by the building design, penetrate the scale model. This means certain areas are missing from the model, and views of the model are sometimes obscured by the columns.
