Yes, the Chinese are world famous for their lack of corruption and graft and their strict adherence to the hightest standards of safety and construction codes. I bet it burns down like a roman candle before its finished.

nothing like working yourself out of a job
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28141421


na they are building it so fast they will have to come in for maintenance every 3 months just to fix the crap they did a bad job on.

its how the world works now do a bad job so you have a job latter on fixing it.

Pre-built modular construction is awesome. We had a house down the street pre-built and shipped a couple of years ago. The owner said that it took them longer to prepare the foundation than it did to put the house up.

Maybe they build it in the empty cities

Funny how jealous american are.

You WERE a super-power. Now we are.

And it is not just a building. It is what we can do. We are just showing to the rest of the world how bright we are.

We have dams, bridges, buildings, we are in the space.

Now is, EXACTLY, the time.

No need to blow it up. It will probably fall down in the next earthquake.

Re: China to Build Tallest Building on Earth in Just 90 Days! Do they Plan to Blow it Up?
I don't know about this, China.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27813202


I think China can do it. They have the can-do spirit that the USA used to have back in the 1930's when the Empire State Bldg. was built.

Back then, we had just learned how to build higher than 20 stories. Steel frame is absolutely necessary, stones or other methods can't go higher than about 20 stories.

And so they turn around and use this new technology to build a 102 story building that was the world's tallest for about another 50 years after. One floor every 2 or 3 days, unbelievably fast. Stylish too, with the stainless steel exterior panels that still look new almost 80 years later.

Now China is going to exploit another new technology that's just proving itself, modular construction of major structures.

"We"? You're posting from Brazil.

But like the Chinese here, I guess you consider Chinese not of your adopted country.

Yes you are bright. Someday soon you may have a major invention. We've had about a century of them. Now it's hard to separate because Chinese are contributing to creative work in US corporations and universities.

Not jealous. You're at the beginning of the road, you've got talent and you might equal us in a century or so. Best of luck -- sincerely.

Made in China. It will break in less than a month.

I was going to say that if it's like anything else they build it will fall apart in a month.

The race to have the tallest building will continue until someone builds one that falls over lol.

Unlikely, the standard engineering principles of high-rise construction still apply, with predictable differences and modifications. It is a great achievement, but mainly just a workmanlike application of existing science and technology.

Notice that these things are done by countries with great engineers. I believe both the super highrises in Kuala Lumpur and Dubai used US engineering firms. China's another place full of capable engineers -- but I would be surprised if no US people or companies are involved in the design. We've got the experience, it makes sense for them to use it.

So something like this will never get built without competent leadership and oversight. At least not the way things go today.

What is probably holding up this building is all the people that need to be paid off in China... Probably the governor of the province who will also force the banks to lend on it too... One of the pictures has the building located in the middle of a large park or forest... That can't possibly be the location of the building... I'm in the camp that says its a huge fiasco...
