The horn-shaped structure is called “Sun Valley” . It is the main structure of Shanghai 2010 World Expo Boulevard which will be the entrance to the Expo. It will be link four streets, connect five blocks and link three Metro stations. It will also have cafes and restaurants.
It is reported to be completed a few days ago and I found it extremely spectacular looking. This architecture will be a permanent one and kept after the show. There are 6 “sun valleys” all together. In between them are 69 pieces of huge white covers so that raining won’t be a problem during the Expo next year.
Here are more images took on Sept 13, 2009:
The red building behind is China Pavilion.

The “valley” collects sunshine as well as rains.
I am totally exciting about the event and have signup to be a volunteer. Welcome you to Shanghai and wish to see you there in 2010.
