CCTV Building Under Construction

Key to China's push for development before their "coming out" in the 2008 Olympics, the CCTV building is a monument of China's media and propaganda empire. Rem Koolhaus sought to break the linear rectangular sky-scraper with an angled loop.

The CCTV building will represent the "new image of Beijing" which values the TV industry. Already some, however, are calling the monument to state-run media a "propaganda machine."
