Matthew Niederhauser, who’s putting finishing touches on a film called Kapital Creation that documents Beijing’s development, recently uploaded a Vimeo featuring stunning aerial footage of this city. It’s interesting how a simple rotation of perspective can completely change how we view a place — and makes you realize the value of a window office atop a skyscraper (or a blimp). Watch the video; you’re unlikely to find urban Beijing rendered more beautifully.
The music is greeN by White+. Some screenshots:
