In the late 1950s, on the principles of “Communism isParadise, Community is the Bridge”, the commune building – Anhua Building, oneof the three tallest buildings in Beijing then, was established. Jin Cheng, thearchitect of China Architecture Design and Research Group, remembers vividlyhow impractical but passionate the discussions were among all the leadingarchitects; Wei Fuquan was the first to move into Anhua, and still lives there;XuQinmin, together with his 4 other family members, exchanged a 30 m² housefor an 8 m² cubiclein Anhua. All of them built their own legacies in their aspirations forcommunism.
