Map art for the upcoming NBA game: The Great Wall
The Great Barrier Reef is being transformed by the city of Shanghai.
The city of Shenzhen, China’s second-largest, plans to replace the iconic Great Wall of China’s Grand Canyon with a high-tech version of the famed structure, the Beijing Times reported Friday.
The project is being called the “Dundas of Shenzen,” and it will be complete by 2027.
The Great Wall was built between 6,500 and 8,000 years ago and features a towering stone tower and a large, stone arch.
It was constructed with the intention of stopping invaders from entering the Great Barrier reef.
The building was designed by famed architect, J. Paul Getty, in the mid-19th century.
The Wall was then built by Chinese soldiers during the Ming dynasty, a period when the country had been a land of peace.
China and the United States have been in a decades-long trade dispute over the ownership of the Great Wall.
The United States has been attempting to reclaim the territory since the late 19th century, while China maintains the structure as part of its territory claims in the East and South China seas.
