Future Shanghai

future shanghai

Shanghai's rapid urbanization and modernization is not expected to slow down. The City creates a perfect image for China and the world, as it continues to look towards the future. Using fantastical animation techniques, the city has rendered itself for future architectural projects and the 2010 World Expo as the city of the future. Architects use these techniques, often a service provided by Crystal CG, to create a virtual city in which a future project will sit. The 2010 Expo's slogan is "Better City, Better Life," with the message that rural Chinese are moving into a better urban future as they construct modern infrastructure and creating parks and green space throughout the city, to create a sustainable city.
