Aka "The Underpants" or "Big Pants" (大裤衩) as the locals call it due to it's distinctive shape.


This is a 44 storey, 234 m tall skyscraper located along the East 3rd Ring Road. It is the headquarters of China Central Television (CCTV in short).


Construction lasted from 2004 until 2012 with an impressive delay caused by a fire at Lantern Festival 2009 (part of Chinese New Year) that engulfed the adjacent "Television Cultural Center" (on the left in the photo). The fire was caused by CCTV officials holding an illegal fireworks celebration - this caused a major scandal in China, as the authorities, especially CCTV, unsuccessfully tried to suppress all news about that fire and its cause.


After being finally completed in 2012 the building won the "2013 Best Tall Building Worldwide" from the "Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat".

As I looked up through the stairwell while attending the grand reopening of the Töölön kirjasto, I couldn't help but be impressed by their state-of-the-art CCTV

the CCTV watches studiously over the platforms at Hainault underground station on the central line. The trains are split perfectly by the iconic art deco station building.

24 hr surveillance helping to keep town centres safe. What a shame.


Maybe it's necessary, just like this lamp post intruding on the photo of the shop window. It's displaying a very clear message.

Hope this falls into the "cool, but what the hell is it" category!
