Dialogue Between Man and City

By staff reporter DONG NING

WHETHER appreciating from outside the ingeniously designed pavilions, or inside to see exhibits fired by creativity and imagination, the Shanghai Expo astonishes visitors with its great sense of life. The theme "Better City, Better Lif" is fully revealed in more than 200 pavilions, which show, in their different ways, how man, city and the earth evolve in an organic process. The pavilions are no longer just structures. Now imbued with life and vigor, they turn spectators into participants, completing a harmonious and equal dialogue between man and city.
