The Sunrise East Kempinski Hotel near the Yanqi Lake in the Huairou District of Beijing, the latest signature building in the city, is ready to open its doors and host the 22th APEC Economic Leaders' Meeting between Nov 10 and 11.
The hotel, shaped like a sun, stands for "the sun rises from the east". On the side, the view is of a shell meaning "wealth" in Chinese culture.
Local photographer Bu Xiangdong has recorded the construction of this building since 2012.
