Shanghai in 2020: But Really Small

Travel to Shanghai's Urban Planning Exhibition Center for a sneak peak of the city's rising future

With Shanghai draped in scaffolding, and running a 24-hour construction marathon, you can feel the excitement of a changing city. But Expo 2010 is far from the finish line—the dramatic transformation will continue for another ten years. You can see the future of “Paris of the East” today at Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center, which has an astonishingly prescient scale model on display. Sprawling across an entire floor, the ginormous miniature city includes replicas of all of today’s buildings, and clear plastic models of the skyscrapers of tomorrow.
