From more traditional beginnings, the city took off over the last 15 years to bring us some of the most sought after architecture in the area.  These are just three of the examples.  China’s economy is seeing huge growth levels, apparently so is their real estate market.  From the very odd on the far left, to the simple yet beautifully modern designs, Beijing is a modern thriving metropolis.  A lot of its best work was inspired from the Olympics that were held there.  Which makes me wonder and want to research what has happened to these great structures since the games have left the city?  It could be wasting away like many Olympic sites do.
