As China emerges as the economic powerhouse of the 21st century, no one can disrupt the biggest construction boom in the world's history. Beijing is experiencing the most rapid redevelopment since Haussmann redesigned Paris in the 19th Century. Olympic crowds marvelled at the new face of Beijing as it unveiled an impressive array of symbols by some of the world?s best-regarded architects: the Watercube and Birds Nest, the National Theatre, the CCTV Tower and the Beijing Capital Airport. While the impact of foreign architects on China may be greater than just the symbolist buildings they create, some Beijingers express concern that these buildings aren't 'culturally appropriate' and question whether they are indeed the best international architecture. This documentary raises questions about the future of China, but it is firstly a portrait of a city, with a distinct cultural and intellectual identity, which is disappearing overnight.
