Exposure of the city plan of Beijing in 1954

After the communist took over the mainland China, the new government once tried to make a huge redesign of Beijing city. There in the above image were two designs (design A on the top left and design B on the top right). The other two designs were the modification based on the opinion from the central government.

It is too bad that Beijing has become the current look. More designs are available at wenxuecity.com.
