Beijing's Qianmen district completed 2008

The gate (original) marked the entrance to the Tatar City and Forbidden City where the Manchurians and other minorities lived as higher castes to the subjugated Chinese City. Beijing was effectively one vast Chinatown-in-China (and the world's biggest city) for 300 years. The district was restored to its Qing Dynasty appearance:

Laozi Temple, Wuxi. There are 200 monasteries being built/ rebuilt in Tibet, and thousands of temples in China proper after the ravages of the Cultural Revolution and the relaxation of unsaid restrictions on religion.

Hey spliff fairy, really impressive examples, but you need to credit your image sources

ouch, it seems you've outdone yourself to find the tackiest China can offer. Paris looks alarming and a ghost town; the Suzhou ones are tacky to the point of theme park wedding fodder. Though the British style town looks at least lived in (though quickly sinicising), and the Austrian wannabe more authentic.

^ It's what I like to call Berlin Style, as it's really getting distinct and is varied by a number of architects. Some have more details and classical grammar, some are more early-modern, sort of streamline, but most of them look really good. See more such Berlin Style examples here.


@These Chinese fake towns: They are an interesting phenomenon, but these don't belong here. This is the thread for them: Chinese copycat cities
