Abstract: This paper examines the role of transnational architectural production in mega project developments in downtown Beijing. The study is situated within the ongoing debate about globalization and the production of new urban spaces. In the process of economic restructuring since the 1970s, local entrepreneurial city governments in the West have adopted urban mega project developments as a major strategy for urban regeneration. Previous studies have examined the rationale, mechanism and impact of mega projects in contemporary urban restructuring processes. However, little attention has been directed to the role of architecture and urban design in mega project development. What combinations of social forces determine the urban form of mega projects? What can the articulated urban form do? And what are the cultural meanings invested by various agencies in the new urban form? This paper addresses these questions through the lens of transnational architectural production in the process of rebuilding downtown Beijing. The study shows that local developers and politicians have consciously used signature design by international architects as a branding tool in marketing their urban mega projects, and in promoting Beijing as a new global city. By choosing modern, high-tech, and futuristic architectural designs by international architects, local elites have created a transnational urban space that caters to the needs of new city users. The paper argues that in post-industrial societies, as culture and economy have increasingly intertwined with each other, the articulation of spatial design has become a major force in the process of capital accumulation.

Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: The Beijing 2008 Olympic Games are drawing near. As one of the few developing countries to host the Olympics, China sees this mega event a golden opportunity to place itself on a global stage. Among the official promotional films, China Forever stands out for its visual appeals and charming imageries. Drawing literatures in semiotics, discourse analysis, sports history and theories of Orientalism, I will examine the visual composition, juxtaposition, selection and content of imageries in this film in relation to China’s national identity, foreign relation, ethnic minorities and foreign policies. I argue that this film is a self-representation of the country under multiple gazes from the West, while it also reflects an internal Orientalist gaze from the Han Chinese to ethnic minorities.
