Oh Those Chinese
In their ever-expansive quest to out-produce, out-populate, out-build, and generally take over the rest of the world, they have now out-meticulousnessed us. This is a full scale model of central Shanghai in 2020. Its 1000 sq ft. and takes up most of the third floor of the Shanghai Urban Planning Museum. All of the buildings have working elevators/garages, as well as water and electricity, and all people visible in the model are actual chinese children employed by the government to "hang out in the city" (cuz they're small).
Ok, none of that was true but next look out for the full scale, life size toothpick model of the world as seen through the eyes of a Pterodactyl 65 million years ago. Coming Fall '11.
