^ bluga, i know you have some experience with china, so you don't know of any recent construction pics from CCTV?

And, as some maybe know there might be many construction updates from CCTV soon. A Swedish architect firm in Beijing is planning to put up a webcam over the construction site!

Autumnriver, how do we know your photos show construction of CCTV HQ? Is there a bill board on site?

Images deleted by Jan. Reason: photographer doesn't want then on it. In that case, we don't give him the redirects either

Thanks a lot Kees!

The construction site is massive, it will be really interesting to see this spectacular giant grow!

Mooi spul Kees!

This is gonna be such a thrill for fans of progressive architecture. This will be absolutely breathtaking when finished! One of the most impressive buildings in the entire world I'm sure...

WOW, Interesting project. Are those columns in the last picture from Kees above? Trying to figure out what that is. Maybe shear cable supports. Anyone know?

What a beautiful render. I had never seen that spiral skyscraper which is between the World Trade Center and the circular square. Do you have any information about it?

I went to the site and it says that that render was done for a competition which as of now, does not have a winner. It could possibly be built unless I have my information incorrectly.

Anyways, I'm really happy to see that Beijing is modernizing but I'd also like to see preservation of historical sites such as the famous hutongs and such. Can't wait to see Beijing in 2008! BTW, when is the CCTV Building finished?
