After the crowds leave the Expo Park once and for all, workers will begin the mammoth job of dismantling hundreds of pavilions and other structures. Yang Weihan looks at how the task is being undertaken in an efficient and environmentally-friendly manner.
Sunday marks the end for hundreds of pavilions that entertained tens of millions of people over the course of the six-month World Expo.
Keeping to the event's theme of "Better City, Better Life", organizers have adopted a "green" approach. The vast majority of materials and equipment will be recycled, reused or returned to their original owners.
At the UK pavilion, more than 60-thousand plant seedlings encased implanted in the illuminated walls are preparing to bloom into a brighter future.
20,000 have been donated to a horticultural research center in Kunming, southwest China's Yunnan Province, and an arboretum back in Britain.
A thousand others will be donated to Chinese schools, while the rest will be auctioned on the Internet.
Elsewhere in the park, many pavilions have already been bought.
The Czech Pavilion will continue to remain in China. It will be transported and rebuilt in Cangzhou, north China's Hebei Province.
Officials said the area of Chinese pavilions will be converted into an creativity industry park.
The whole area, including the China Pavilion, the Expo Culture Center and other buildings, will be closed and reopened once they have been redecorated.
