2017 the Chinese Investor Han Hao - who bought already the concert hall in Reykjavik - will take over the building ruin of the reconstructed Berlin City Palace to realize the shopping mall 'Palast des Luxus'. The almost completed bare concrete structure of Franco Stella will be connected with the so far uncompleted roof construction for the Reichstag building of Sir Norman Foster, corresponding to the creation of the Chinese Shanzhai-Culture.

"Shanzhai Products don’t want to mislead consciously. Their attractiveness persist therein not being original whilst playing with it. The Shanzhai movement deconstructs creation as creatio ex nihilo. Shanzhai is de-creation. The identity is pervaded by transformed difference, active, activist differentiating, the being in process, the essence, the way. Thus the Shanzhai manifests the authentic Chinese spirit." (Byung-Chul Han)
