Beijing22 Talk #3

Unfolding China’s mega-event urbanization model

This summer many photo series of abandoned and decaying former Olympic sites were published by foreign media outlets and marked the review on the legacy of the 2008 Beijing Olympics a decade later. We want to take it further and discuss what impact this mega-event had on the capital. In what way does the Beijing pre- and post-Olympics Beijing differ? Did the Olympics benefit the urban and social development? In what way did the international image of China change through this global event? How are events like the Olympics utilized for a Chinese urbanization model?

Our third talk in the series of Beijing22 will examine the actual impact this mega-event had in the long run. For a better understanding of future developments, the Beijing22 Talk #3 will cast a backward glance at how events like the Olympics were used to legitimize urban reforms under tremendous time constraints. Based upon the archive that Beijing22 is creating on the notion that those who do not know the past cannot understand the present, we will look at the past Olympics, their impact on the today and what can be learned for the 2022 Olympics.

Next, to two short presentations, we will give the audience a first glimpse into the project “Beijing 2022: No problem/China’s ambition for the 2022 Winter Olympics: turning cave villages into Davos”, by our first year's Beijing22 fellow Tsai Ting-I. Together with Matjaz Tancic, and Christiano Bianchi, the project documents the change along the route from the old Olympic Stadium to Chongli, Zhangjiakou, and Yanqing, which are some of the developing areas towards 2022.

Date: December 15th

Time: 4 pm
