Rebuilding Qianmen 前门改造

June 6th, 2008

Here it is. This is the southern end of Qianmen Dajie. The yellow thing in the foreground is the trolley stop. The tracks go from one end to the other. The buildings at this end are identical and new. The lighting takes its inspiration from sugarcoated haws on a stick.

Below, old Qianmen Dajie with the trolley running its length.
