shanghai is amazing,it makes other major cities in china(except HK) look like provincial cities,i ve only been to shanghai twice,it's really developping at a stunning speed,the second time i went there,it had already appeared different from what i remembered on my first trip there,a great number of high rise apartment buildings had been built during the 6 months' interval,i believe it won't take long before it becomes the largest city in china(this time ,HK is included),and BTW ,zorg,where are you from?i ve seen threads you posted about Wuhan,and i could see you have some affection to it,so i was wondering.

Expo starts to build Performance Pavilion



Shanghai Vice Mayor Yang Xiong and Shanghai Party Publicity Department Chief Wang Zhongwei press the start-up button

World Expo Shanghai organisers today announced the start of construction on the Expo Performance Center.

It is located in the southeast of the Expo site.

Shanghai Vice Mayor Yang Xiong and Shanghai Party Publicity Department Chief Wang Zhongwei pressed the start-up button.

The Performance Center is one of the four most important permanent pavilions in Expo site. The other three are the China Pavilion, the Theme Pavilion, and the Expo center.

In the shape of a flying-saucer, the center was designed according to the 3R principle�Creduce, reuse and recycle.

It holds 18,000 audiences at most and can change its capability and three-dimensional stage design according to performance, which is the first time that China applied such technology.

The design of the Performance Center was selected among 27 submissions around world.

During the Expo 2010, the center will open around the clock to provide the stage for art shows and entertainment activities.
