Victorian Government Super Trade Mission to China

last week in Beijing, as a participant in the Victorian Government Super Trade Mission to China, we had a chance to see OMA's wonderful CCTV building. The 'money shot' that everyone has seen is taken from distance. However it was disappointing that there is no public access to the building (not even close) thanks to a large perimeter fence, so unfortunately the opportunity to create interesting public space at street level and engage with the urban fabric is lost.
