The biggest single exhibit in the China Show is a rather big model of a rather big development called Grand Moma, one of a series of Moma projects undertaken by the Modern Land Group. Business Week Magazine called this one of China's "top ten new architectural wonders", housing 2500 people in 700 apartments with a crown of service establishments on the 20th floor. And some underground carparks, too. Mr Monkey examined the model, and wondered why there weren't any safety rails on the walkways across the lake in the middle.
You can read about Grand Moma at the Spiritual Space Hanya blog (Chinese links, English text).
