The Future of Dongguan: Dongguan City Planning Exhibition Gallery


Barely opened for half a year, the Dongguan City Planning Exhibition Gallery has already been surprising visitors with an interesting view of an otherwise expectedly boring topic. Spend a few hours to see how Dongguan has developed throughout its existence and where it’s going.

“The museum introduces Dongguan by utilizing strong urban planning professional expertise, experimental games and creative design,” said Jack Wong, who participated in the planning of the space.

DSC02164Built in seven years over a 3.5 hectares space, the campus features a tranquil outdoor relaxing area with a lake and seating. The two display floors are built next to the water in a clean, futuristic style.

Five themed exhibition halls display the historic urban layout, the concept of harmonious combination of humans and nature in building design and key modern elements of a livable city such as: low-carbon emissions in agriculture and transportation, Industrial 4.0 and smart communities.

With advanced display methods and interactive games, such as touch screens and panoramic digital views, the museum aims to create a promotional, educational and aesthetic look into Dongguan’s urban construction from a planning perspective.

The Panoramic Model Area is one of the highlights of the museum. Utilizing both Chinese and English Subtitles, the video will fly you over the city’s master plan in “mountain, water and city” structures.
