Did you know that the Tiananmen Gate was completely torn down in 1969? That the Qianmen Gate was designed by a German architect? Or that Beijing's old train station mysteriously changed its location southwards?

"Transformation Beijing" is the story of three of Beijing's most iconic buildings. Tiananmen - the old gate where laws used to be declared to the people, the old Beijing train station - built to give foreigners a chance to escape Chinese retaliation, and Qianmen - the first entrance to the inner city. All of these buildings have long lost their original purpose. But they have also attained new meaning in "New China", to an extent where it would be nearly impossible to imagine the centre of the capital without them.
