While the majority of my time In Beijing was spent taking and editing photos and learning the ways of the subway system and taxi network to get to photo locations - and also learning how to navigate across giant intersections filled with bikes, scooters, 3 wheelers, cars, buses and other pedestrians -there was also time for some sightseeing and cultural education. Photo 1 is from The Great Wall. Ever heard the phrase “climb the Great Wall of China”. Believe it - it’s a climb! Photo 2 is from the Beijing Summer Olympic Park. Parts of this will be used at least for indoor sports when Beijing hosts the Winter Olympics in 2022. The 3rd photo is a detail from the Forbidden City. What long ago history inside the walls contrasted with more recent history outside the walls at Tiananmen Square. #china#beijing#foreignphotoassignment#chinasightseeing#beijingsightseeing#greatwallofchina#beijingolympics#beijingolympicpark#beijingsummerolympics#forbiddencity#theforbiddencity

#fbf to being an event host during the 2008 Olympic Games, when I was responsible for the executive team of one of the principle sponsors: McDonald's. I met the executives at the airport and escorted them to activities including the Opening Ceremonies, press conferences, VIP dinners, and the Great Wall (I went to the Great Wall five times in three weeks and ran into @ajbellos and @emilycbellos there). The Beijing Olympic Committee assigned chauffeured black luxury sedans with tinted windows to the McDonald's executives, and these sedans could drive in special lanes marked off on the freeway for important Olympics guests. We breezed around the capital in these lanes, but everyone else on the traffic-choked roads of Beijing had to deal with one fewer lane for themselves. #translator#interpreter#linguist#china#chinese#beijing#beijingolympics#chineselanguage#olympics#summerolympics#adventure#greatwall#writerlife#author#corporatepawn
Creating one of the top destinations in Beijing, a one-of-a-kind urban environment for all of the city's residents and visitors to enjoy, by providing world-class facilities for sports, entertainment, shopping, living, and dining. - Taking advantage of the size of the site and its existing natural flora to provide generous green belt areas, the development concept for the Beijing Olympic Plaza featured an expansive plaza for outdoor events. With further opportunity to exploit the ample green belt and open spaces of the project, the retail component was configured as a climate-controlled "canal walk". In addition to its functions as a circulatory, visual, and experiential link, the "canal walk" was planned to serve as an attraction for both commerce and community - a dynamic element that would enhance and enliven circulation along the length of the retail mall and to serve as a concourse for services and activities along its edges. - For the planning and design of this project, HCH directed a design team that consisted of Gensler, Swanke Hayden Connell Architects, Rossetti, and Fei & Cheng Associates. . . . . . #architecture#architectural#planninganddesign#buildingplanning#architectureporn#sacredspaces#architect#architecturaldrawing#architecturalplans#beijingolympics#inspiringprojects#urbandevelopment#masterplanning#deisgn#designconsultant#stadiumdesign
