China, I am impressed! Watch this!


I just hope it doesn't go down faster than the time built.
"Impressive, that's what i had to say about the construction of this particular hotel in Changsha, which only took 6 days to built. Did my matriculation college had less construction time than this? Video of construction after the link!"
Six days. That's how long it took to build this level 9 Earthquake-resistant, sound-proofed, thermal-insulated 15-story hotel in Changsha, complete with everything, from the cabling to three-pane windows. The foundations were already built, but it's just impressive.

The wonders of prefabricated construction modules and modern construction techniques will never cease to amaze me. I just can't understand why every single building is not pre-made in factories first, for optimal energy, material and time savings, not to talk about a more efficient and cheaper end result and, in the case of the Ark Hotel, only 1% construction waste.
