Beijing between lines and lanes

The actions of observing the streets of a city could give a great overview of how the city itself is. In the case of Beijing, alleys, roads and hutongs offer important insights about the history of this great town. Looking at the transformation of the streets through times, it’s easy to notice many changes as well as the fact that the spatial structure of the streets has remained the same as it used to be during the Qing Dynasty. Thanks to the installation of the exhibit, it will be possible to see comparisons and contrasts, differences and similarities between how Beijing used to be in the past eras and how it is nowadays.
