CCTV Headquarters, Beijing: 2 reviews and 6 photos


CCTV - China Central Television New Headquarter Building.

This impressive innovative architecture caught my eyes and have becoming my favorite tall building of Beijing. I have taken so many photos of this building on different days, different skies and different angles and distances.

It was supposed to be ready by August 2008 but was still under construction. Actually, all constructions in Beijing were also halted during the duration of Olympics and Paralympics Games in August and September. So I hope it will be ready during my next visit to Beijing.

Basically it consists of two leaning towers that are joined at the top by a L shaped podium.

This competition winning design is from Rem Koolhass of the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) of the Netherlands.

Address: 32 E 3rd Ring Road Middle, Chaoyang,
