Lonely Planet review for Shanghai Exhibition Centre

The hulking great monolith of the Shanghai Exhibition Centre can be seen from West Nanjing Rd. It was built as the Palace of Sino-Soviet Friendship, a friendship that soon turned to ideological rivalry and even the brink of war in the 1960s. Architectural buffs will appreciate its monumentality and unsubtle, bold Bolshevik strokes – there was a time when Pǔdōng was set to look like this. The site of the Exhibition Centre was originally the gardens of the Jewish millionaire Silas Hardoon.
