Arch Daily has posted first-person video of the fire that has engulfed Beijing’s Television Cultural Centre (TVCC), the building adjacent to the headquarters of China Central Television (CCTV), a building designed by Rem Koolhaas of The Office for Metropolitan Architecture.

There are many incorrect reports that the CCTV building is on fire. It is not, although it is in danger of being so because of its proximity to TVCC, which in fact, is on fire.

The TVCC building was supposed to open in mid-May, but current reports indicate that the building is now more or less unusable.

UPDATE: For those that can understand Chinese, here’s a news report with better video (courtesy of ChinaSMACK).
