The Urban Planning Hall celebrates the past, present, and future of Tianjin. This design inspiration comes from the conflict between classic and modern design, expressing the urban planning and architectural forms of the city between the 19th and 20th centuries. The resulting plan is a simply arranged rectangle with the main ceremonial entry facing the city. The large lecture hall and educational / commercial spaces are on the bottom level. The first floor – the primary entrance – exhibits the history of Tianjin from ancient times through modernity, with second and third floors. The Tianjin map is embedded on a large stone display and describes the history of Tianjin’s urban development. In addition, the reverse side of the map is lit up to show the two dimensional patterns of the city, including its waterways, alleys, and parks, serving as a three dimensional ornament for the new building.
