The Forbidden Wooden City
How long did this full model of the Forbidden City take to build? Can you imagine doing something like this for a school project? And it seems so… flammable!
I took this photo inside the city planning museum in Beijing. Across the street in Tiananmen Square, there were tens of thousands of people, but this museum was totally empty. If you ever do visit one of these Chinese mega-cities, I think they all have these strange “City Planning” museums – they all are filled with really cool models like this.
