According to him, as the cultural environment has become an increasingly important indicator of urban core competitiveness in modern times, we should press home the pulling power of celebrities so as to do their bit to strengthen cultural confidence and build a culturally strong country. And to that end, a holistic construction in implanting the memorials of celebrities in social and cultural environment is necessary to achieve a shift from major activities, which used to highlight the educational function of the memorials and subjective activities and focus on the learning effect of visitors, to the establishment of the co-building, win-win and co-sharing relationship between the public and other social subjects. He put forward that memorials of celebrities should strike a balance between three roles – “a new space for cultural experience”, “a junction station for crossover cooperation” and “an incubation base for life wisdom”. Meanwhile, considering the development status of the memorial, he offered a suggestion on specific measures taken to play well the three roles, namely improving interactive commentating modes through further subdividing the public, catering for a diversified clientele through expanding voluntary participation channels and creating an environment for the all-round experience through strengthening the support of technologies, so as to achieve interaction and co-building, drive the cultural cooperation between cultural institutes and business tourism providers and bring mutual benefit and win-win results. Meanwhile, a plenty of work should be done in building new landmarks for urban culture, pooling new forces to benefit the people and creating new life styles featured by voluntary services in a bid to realize the fusion and co-sharing between the Memorial and the public.
