In Beijing, you will often see a the character 拆 “chai" painted on the walls of certain buildings. Mostly on hutongs (the dwellings of Old Beijing), it marks them out for demolition.

 

A few months ago I came across this amazing hutong while on a bike ride with a friend. Climbing onto the roof, we discovered an entire courtyard.
