Description

Beijing: The New City is a fully illustrated and in-depth investigation of the Chinese capitalfocusing on the changes in its urban layout within the last two decades (1990-2005). In view of the forthcoming Olympics, Beijing is intent on revitalizing its image as the capital of a nation capable of taking a leading role in the world.

Constructionhas been underway for several years with contemporary skyscrapers and architecturally ambitious forms gradually enclosing the historic city centre. This transformation has been entrusted to the most prestigious architects on the international scene. Current projects include the National Stadium by Herzog & de Meuron, the Central Chinese Television Headquarters by OMA and Terminal 3 of Beijing Capital Airport by Foster & Partners.
