Today our class went to visit the Tianjin planning exhibition hall. Originally when I heard we were going here I assumed it wouldn't be very exciting but I completely under estimated the hall. At the time I did not know what to expect so when I walked in and saw a huge 1:750 floor model of the entire city I was truly astonished! Then it lit up in sync with a wall video that told you some of the cities past and details. After that I was excited to see more and hear more about the city. We walked around the building on a guided tour to check out the multiple model displays of the town's regions and various sections. It was our tour guide's first tour and she did very well. The hall has a large number of models separate from the main floor model. As we walked around I could not help but think of how much time, energy, and money was put into all these models. It took over two months just to make the main floor model and they had hundreds of other smaller models. The detail was very good considering that there are 371 sq. km reduced down into a floor model covering 40 - 50 sq. yards, not to mention the 1.4 million suites.
