Four tower blocks making up the Siping complex
in Yangpu District of Shanghai are demolished in a controlled explosion in
the early morning, October 20, 2005. The 17,000-square-meter complex was
dismantled to make way for the construction of an urban transit hub. More
than 400 households living in this 14-story complex, the first highrise
residential building constructed in Shanghai, have been relocated.
