    WE call that insuclad over here, and its very much fallen out of favour, because of the leaky home syndromes. If they use the same stuff for apartment buildings in China, then some of the investors who are quite prepared to leave them empty, could be in for a bit of a shock.

    Thank you T-U-P for the interesting photos. From my personal experience I have seen one particular Chinese University - Guangzhou (Sun Yat Sen) University in Guandong when I conducted some Seminars for post-graduate students. This Uni is very BIG with 5 campus spread throughout the Province. The main Uni @ Guangzhou is lovely with beautiful (very old) and well-built modern buildings. The Uni has a hugh student body all busy & with heavy human traffic. I suppose Shenzhen Universiade could be similar. Not fair to judge only by looking at photos or hearsay. Visit the place & then comment would be better.

    No no NO!

    The Universiade is a sporting event, not an education facility.

    Oh my God I hope you're right. As a practicing architectural designer, I HATE that stuff! Some of my client even wants houses to be built out of it, just because it's common practice.

    The Universiade is a sporting event like Red Moon said, it is like the Olympics for university students. It just ended by the time I got to Shenzhen.

    Oops! I mistook the word "Universaide" which is quite similar sounding word to Portuguese - meaning University. Thanks for the correction T-U-P.

    They are ok, suzhou has pretty bad fog/smog the few days i was there. The day when i went to shanghai is nice, with blue sky and everything. Shenzhen had really good air quality, all thanks to the voluntary traffic control during the Universiade (it's voluntary, you sign up saying that you promise not to drive your car during the Universiade). There was definitely less bad habits in Shenzhen, and the city was noticably cleaner.

    Here are some more pictures:

    Suzhou Train Station:

    Shanghai Bund (of all the trips I've been to Shanghai, I've never went to the Bund):

    The mast is a coffee shop, and it's not terribly expensive considering how it probably has one of the best views on the Bund (30 to 40 yuan for a cup of coffee would translate into an average starbuck price in North America I think).

    This place used to be the largest slaughter house in Shanghai, supposedly it used to slaughter 60% of all of Shanghai's livestocks (of course who knows if anything else got killed here :confused:). Nowadays there are all sorts of restaurants inside, but te place is still very creepy. Apparently the interior was used to film the opening and ending fights of Fearless.

    This one is in Suzhou, brings back memories
