17 millions inhabitants; 16 808km2 (Paris is 105); five ringroads surrounding the town. Beijing is a megalopolis. What’s within sight? what’s out of sight?

Entanglement alleyways of old facing up to brand new malls. Broad thoroughfares blaring out the traffic jam din. Giant parks whom one of these, thrones right in the heart of the city. Go on and on with this list, endlessly…
Ubiquitous paradox, chaotic development, frantic activity? Hard to sum up. Beijing, it’s a certain idea of yesterday, but an idea quasi certain of tomorrow. Craving for a miraculous future. Beijing is mostly a gone through place; a suitable place, “situated in a very peculiar space, the intermediate space…matching with an intermediate time, a temporality which could be qualified of floating. This is it…Beijing or the floating time. Beijing is wandering, so as it seems to correspond to “an history of an entirety sought after “.
