NOWNESS Presents “Ole Scheeren: A Beijing Essay”

German architect Ole Scheeren is the founder of Büro Ole Scheeren — an architecture firm responsible for designing several striking buildings including the CCTV Headquarters in Beijing. While Scheeren has done his fair share in altering the landscape of major Asian cities — Bangkok, Singapore and Taipei — he continues to revisit Beijing for inspiration. A city known for its rich heritage and booming economy, the Chinese capital continues to be one of the world’s cultural hotspots. Here, NOWNESS teams up with the architect for a short film, where he narrates his relationship with the city. The video captures Beijing’s characteristics in under three minutes, presenting an intimate rendition that makes sense of the urban hustle.
