Commune by the Great Wall (Beijing)
Described as a “private collection of contemporary architecture” rather than a hotel, Commune by the Great Wall is more Swedish-contemporary than Chinese. Consisting of 12 cutting edge villas with an unobstructed view of the Great Wall and a 360-degree view of mountains and greenery, the contemporary structures have not only become an attraction amongst design junkies, but with history buffs and city slickers in need of 5-star R&R. The real selling point of Commune is that guests can access a private path which leads into an un-restored portion of China’s Great Wall, untouched by the effects of tourism.

We sat down with Anne Pasternak for a few questions about Creative Time's past and future, as well as the importance of having an awareness about public art in the city.
