This piece addresses the astonishing rate of transformation in the contemporary Chinese cityscape, presenting an ironic vision of Chinese architecture out of control. I have taken buildings of the most well known architectural projects from the Beijing skyscape and reconstructed them so they become an undoable spectacle. The Chinese Government is deliberately producing awe-inspiring architecture to persuade and convince foreign observers of their hyper-modernist perspective. More importantly, while visiting Beijing it became evident that the Communist Party is also deliberately using architecture to persuade and convince their national audience of the Party’s insightful perspective on their own future.
