The exhibition consists of three main parts, focusing on the past, present and future of Guangzhou's development.

The sculpture was created by Xu Hongfei, head of the Guangzhou Sculpture Academy, and displays the spirit of the Guangzhou people, such as their boldness in risk-taking and fearlessness in innovation.
