Part III. Narration · New Outlook


As the time passed, various dynasties rose and fell in succession. After the monarchical system eventually perished, the Central Axis of Beijing, before an important carrier of imperial authority, saw great changes in its destiny and eventually found fresh justification in the new concept of urban construction. The feudal imperial facilities, such as the Forbidden City, Tian'anmen Square and temples, gradually became places to serve the public. The change of function complies with the requirements of the new era and demonstrates historical progress. With its northward and southward extension and as its application for World Cultural Heritage listing approaches, the Central Axis of Beijing springs into life again, just like the city it dissects.
