French Building of Shanghai's Universal Exhibition
Software used: Graitec Advance Design
Project location: Shangahi, China
Design Office: C&E Engineering
Shanghai Expo 2010 will extend along both banks of the Huangpu River between Lupu and Nanpu bridges, covering 5.28 sqkm area straddling the Pudong district on the east bank and Puxi on the west. It will comprise five district zones.
Jean Marc WEILL, Director of C&E Engineering : "Nowadays, calculation is no longer strictly for specialized engineers, since computers have made this task simpler. With 3D models, engineers can literally see how the building works, almost as easy as if they were actually in the building. This is exactly how ADVANCE Design, with its intuitive interface, assisted us on this project"
