FUSUIJING BUILDING

The Fusuijing Building, built in 1958 as a product of the Great Leap Forward period, has a large dining hall, eight storeys high, and is the first elevator building in Beijing, built from the remnants of the Great Hall of the People. The body volume and its grand, dignified, 25,000 square meters "Z" shape of the building in the Hutongs community in the northwest of the White Tower Temple, no angle, difficult to see the whole picture.

The once famous "people's commune building", also known as "communist building". In the age of the great leap forward, public canteens are one of the most obvious features, and the most popular and advocated way of life is for families to gather together to eat their meals. The people who lived in the people's commune were subject to strict political scrutiny.

Fortunately, this building has been included in the first "Beijing Modern History Protection List", which is fortunate because the listed buildings not only can not be demolished, but also the external facade can not be changed.
