As shown in the imagines below the People’s Building in Shanghai is based upon the Chinese sign ‘Ren’ which can be translated to ‘People’.
The two part building is a hotel, sports and conference centre for the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai. One side of the building which emerges from the water is home to the sports centre. The second part of the building which emerges from the land is a conference centre. There is also a 1000 room hotel located where the two parts meet.
