Our Sister, Shanghai

Fun fact dug up by SF Citizen: "It was sort of a race between Los Angeles and San Francisco to establish a Sister City relationship with Shanghai and of course San Francisco won – and it was the first such Sister City relationship between an American city and a Chinese city." So said Senator Dianne Feinstein in 2005, on the sibling bond that may soon bring us a 15-ton mutant Buddha statue. As part of "Shanghai Celebration 2010," there'll also be a couple architecture-related events, including one by architect Jeffrey Heller, who will describe green building in China.
