a spectacular 3D light and sound show, which was held on the building's western
style facade.

It took technicians 17 days to complete this dazzling display. The technical crew that made this possible was the same group behind the Qingming Riverside Festival moving scroll, at the China Pavilion during the Shanghai World Expo.
