In 2019, I went to China, and my colleagues took me to the site of the former Shugang steel plant in the suburbs of Beijing. This place is interesting because instead of demolishing the plant, the country’s authorities decided to create a park, recreation area and build sports facilities for the 2022 Winter Olympics. It also houses the headquarters of the Winter Olympics. The place is interesting because it turned into a tourist attraction, and I took some photos from the highest point – the blast furnace, where I had to take an elevator.
I was extremely impressed with China’s fantasy and efforts.
