The Henan People’s Hall recently become a subject of scrutiny after Chinese media published images of the building, which has been plastered with advertising billboards for the past 10 years in an open disregard for government rules.
The People’s Hall, located in Zhengzhou city, hosts various shows and performances and serves as an important cultural window to the outside world. On the outside, billboards cover nearly every inch of the auditorium.
The ad posters have been up for around 10 years, but no one has really done anything about it. Executive officials have visited the building and investigated it many times but have likewise failed to mention the eyesores, according to Southern.com.
