On the Cutting Edge: China's Extraordinary Buildings
China Central Television Building
Sometimes called the "Big Underpants" by locals, Beijing's CCTV building is an imposing sight, spectacular to behold. Pritzker Prizewinning architect Rem Koolhaas designed the structure, which is the headquarters of the country's massive state-controlled media. The building officially opened in 2008, just months before the Beijing Olympic Games.
