Beijing / Bibliography
WANG JUN. (2011) Beijing Record: A Physical and Political History of Planning Modern Beijing. World Scientific Publishing Co. Pte. Ltd.
Wang Jun’s book Beijing Record clearly records the key decisions that led to Beijing’s present urban fragmentation and its loss of memory and history in the form of the bulldozing of its architectural heritage. This book discusses the vision by historians, urban planners and journalists that have written or commended on the transformation of the city Beijing.
This book also analyzes the stories about lives of architects and planners including Liang Sicheng, Lin Huiyin, Chen Zhanxiang and Hua Lanhong.
