Best Practices Area
Expo Shanghai has chosen more than 55 projects - almost twice the expected number
- to exhibit in the
Urban Best Practices Area of the Expo site, organizers
announced. A local green building project, called
"Eco-house in Shanghai,"
is among them. Among the
55-plus chosen projects, six are from Chinese mainland
cities - Shanghai, Tianjin, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Hangzhou and Suzhou. Other
Chinese proposals come from
Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
a site sized more than 15 hectares, the Urban Best Practices Area offers a stage
for cities around the world
to propose their solutions to urban issues from
different perspectives. Originally, Expo organizers planned to
30 examples for the exhibition.
Due to the overwhelming number of proposals
around the world, the organizers not only expanded the possible number
of projects to be displayed, but they also postponed the deadline for cities to
make submissions to January 31 this year. In the end, the international selection
committee of UBPA received 113 projects, among which
106 proposals from 87
cities were valid, said Zhou Hanmin, deputy director general of the Bureau of
Expo Coordination. Although the first period of selection is
now over, the 51
cities that missed out can still apply to exhibit for a short
period of one to 10 days during Expo.
