Beijing Photo Journal: Architecture

November 26, 2013 at 11:36 am

We hope you enjoyed last week’s interview with People’s Architecture Office, and while we’re talking building, we invite you to explore our version of a photo-scrapbook.

This is a collection of behind-the-scenes architecture snapshots from our summer in China. It includes everything form the historic splendour of the Forbidden City and the glitz of neon-covered nightclubs, to the crumbling rooftops of 200-year-old hutongs and austere modern structures. Pull up a chair, pour a cup of tea and enjoy the show.
