Photographs taken in the Beijing (Urban) Planning Exhibition Hall (北京市规划展览馆) in 2005 and 2006. This is a new, fascinating, yet underrated (and "under-visited") exhibit hall with state-of-the-art displays and installations.

The photographs in this gallery depict
- the projected greenbelt around China's capital
- the layout of the Olympic green
- the CBD (central business district), complete with the new CCTV building designed by Rem Koolhaas - the "bagel", as it is called sometimes due to its twisted shape)
- various separate, district-specific exhibit rooms (Xuanwu, Xicheng, Fengtai, Chongwu etc. all have their own exhibit spaces).
