In 2021, the Chinese government released a new mandate that would limit the number of "weird" buildings to be built in the country. According to the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), super high-rise buildings over 500 metres would be limited as well. While this news may sound discouraging to some, it's worthy to note that China has more than a mere handful of fantastic, majestic architecture to gaze upon. Below are some of the best examples of architectural play found within the country.
1. The Great Wall of China
We start the list off with one of the 7 Wonders of the World: the Great Wall of China. Though it's not a modern marvel per se, its construction and architecture are just as magnificent. It was built about two millennia ago and spans the length of northern China throughout southern Mongolia. It was built as a way to protect certain states from the threat of barbarian invasions.
