Who made this "manipulation"? It's my photo originally (as you can see on the watermark).

It's no problem really, but remember to always write the name of the photographer when posting someone's photos - and also to mention that the photo is a manipulation (if it is, that is).

Are all the buildings in that North Bund photo real or some of them just photoshop? And I like the Minhang District Court.

Its actually a very excellent copy id say. Take this people's courst/capitol structure out of context and no one would guess that it is in minhang. i know ppl are outraged at how it spits on chinese culture but you have to admit it is a very good imitation

Hope u've made the statement out of concern, which i doubt u did, and not as a gud thing for tht particular region.

In fact this is not a naturally formed wet land. The whole jiangwan region had been a military airforce base. The PLAAF has stopped using the airport for more than 20 years due to security concern during the dramatic expansion of the suburban. So the airport had been desolate while many birds and animals was living there without being disturbbed by humanbeing. Finally Shanghai municipal bought the land from PLA.

From afar it does look real, but have you stand infront of it? The proportion and lots of elements of Eurpean (neo-) classical architecture were not understood.

The former border between the two Germanies is not natural as well, but a great part of it has become a refuge for many endangered wild animals and is now protected by law and has become a great place for recreation and tourists.

I would assume the DMZ between North/South Korea would be a refuge too following potential unification.

Shanghai's "new town" construction does not make sense to me; all I see it doing is causing traffic and environmental problems. Why not add more density in city districts? Public transport can handle the density, the inadequate motorways cannot. If that does not work, make the new towns high-density transit hubs. Build an organic city like Hong Kong, and cut out the hokey projects that look like what Las Vegas vomited out after eating Dubai's excrement.

Yello, the 'shikumen' are the Xintiandi-style homes, right? I'm not familiar with Chinese architecture.

Is it true that Hamburg has fuel-cell buses?

Jiangwan locates at the junction of three highly populous and industrilized municipal district, Baoshan, Zhabei, and Yangpu. And it is surrounded by skyscrapers, railway, expressway, container depots, factories, etc. So I believe it is unrealistic to keep it refuge.

Anyway fortunately there are two well protected wetland/beach as refuge for wild animals (especially for birds) in Chongming Island, Shanghai. They are The 东滩 East Beach/Dongtan (326 square Km) and North Lake/Beihu (12 square Km) Birds Refugees.

I find this news from
http://english.people.com.cn/english...816_48362.html

Dongtan Mudflat Applies for World's Important Wetlands
An application has been submitted recently to make a patch of mudflat at the estuary of the Yangtze River one of the world's most important wetlands.

Covering an area of 326 square kilometers, the Dongtan Mudflat, on Shanghai's Chongming Island, the country's third largest island, is a natural reserve for birds.

Dongtan Mudflat is the largest wetland at the estuary of the Yangtze River and still maintains its natural condition, untouched by humanbeing.

Natural conditions have made the Dongtan Mudflat a paradise for birds. It is at the middle point of the migration route of migrant birds in the Asia-Pacific region. Moreover, mild climate in the region has enabled trees and grasses to grow luxuriantly, which in turn provides bountiful food for migrant birds.

Currently, the Dongtan Mudflat is home to a total of nearly 3 million birds of 108 species, many of which are key animals under the country's protection.

Scientists are pleased to find that due to the tidal force and the accumulation of silt brought on by the Yangtze River, the Dongtan Mudflat has expanded in the area continuously.

Correspondingly, interesting changes have taken place to the birds, animals and vegetation on the island, making the mudflat a valuable venue for biological study.

To date, China has seven natural reserves listed as the world's important wetlands, including the Zhalong reserve in Heilongjiang province and Xianghai reserve in Jilin province.

崇明东滩是上海地区鸟类最大的栖息地,国际著名的侯鸟亚太迁徙路线上的重要驿站,每年在此过境和越冬的典型湿地鸟类有近100种,200多万只。总的鸟类181种,隶属13目36科,其中夏侯鸟17种,冬侯鸟64种,旅鸟79种,留鸟21种。国家一级保护侯鸟2种,二级保护鸟类9种,列入濒危野生动物国际贸易公约5种,中日保护协定鸟类72种,中澳保护协定鸟类72种。

在崇明岛的东部,有一个滩涂侯鸟保护区,面积有3万公顷,是世界上为数不多的野生鸟类集居、栖息地之一,目前正在申报世界重要湿地。东滩有116种鸟,尤其是小天鹅在东滩越冬数量达3000-3500只。更珍贵的如白额雁、绿鹭、黑脸琵鹭等也有。还有来自澳大利亚、新西兰、日本等国过境栖息候鸟,总数多达300万。在观鸟的季节里,可以看到大片鸟群像天上的白云般飘移而至,景象颇为壮观。

  到东海观鸟,最佳的时机就是早晨,因为东海日出是崇明的一大自然胜景,崇明东滩地处东海最前沿。早晨既能观鸟又能观日出,真是一举二得。

So I suggest chinese forumers to orgnize a dedicated thread for Chongming Island.

I don't like the "capitol" in Minghang personally because it locates on a wrong place.If its designer is Chinese,maybe he wanted to pass some information to make a Chinese court look like US political building,however,I would rather it is to be built in Shanghai Disneyland for children.

Yes, Xintiandi is modernised/diesneyfied Shikumen. It is a mixture of Chinese architekture with European decorative elements.

Hamburg does have a few fuel-cell buses, but they are still on a trial.
