RIP TVCC Feb 9, 2009


Part of Rem Koolhaas‘ CCTV Olympic center, the TVCC building has literally been burnt to the ground. Read up on the incident over at the Times. This part kills me!

At the same time, people were still shooting off fireworks from the sides of the roads, adding to the seeming chaos in the city.

    What a spectacle/shame…

  • This is insane. A friend of mine has an architecture studio in Beijing that has/had a direct view of the building, hopefully he’ll have some photos for us. Good news – no apparent structural damage!
