Concierge.com's insider take:
More interesting than it sounds, this dramatic five-story glass building showcases the city's future urban development through detailed models and multimedia displays. On the third floor, an enormous model shows Shanghai in 2020, an endless sprawl of skyscrapers. The fourth floor offers an aerial view of the model, as well as exhibits on future transportation projects, including a Maglev train, while in the basement there's a charming mock-up of 1930s Shanghai with shops and restaurants. If you're wondering just how far (and high) the city's planners are going to take Shanghai's development, you'll find all the answers here.
