——Exhibition Overview——

Part I. Tracing · Ancient Legends


A view of regarding the North Pole as the center was first developed in prehistoric primitive tribes, marking the initial stage of urban central axis. Although people in the past dynasties strove to form such an entity, it was not until the Yuan Dynasty that a pattern most approximating the one proposed in the Rites of Zhou: Book of Diverse Crafts was established. That pattern actually contains the rudiments of the Central Axis of Beijing. During the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368 to 1911), the Central Axis of Beijing was further developed and eventually completed.
