Timelapse Of 30-Story Building Built In 15 Days

January 11, 2012


This is a timelapse of a 30-story, state of the art hotel being built in China in a meager 15-days. Wow. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't stay there. Get it? I don't have the money for a hotel! I'll sleep in the rental.

Constructed in Dongting Lake in Hunan province, the hotel is 170,000 square feet and can withstand a 9.0 earthquake reports Treehugger.

According to the International Business Times, the prefabricated modules were put together in a factory and then placed on steel structures at the construction site.

The Chinese company behind the speedy design and building is Broad Group, a firm which previously built the 15-story Ark Hotel in Changsha, China, in just six days.

Meh, I built a 30-story LEGO tower in a single weekend once. "And what happened to it?" WTF do you think happened -- it collapsed before I was finished. Then I used the pieces to make a relatively anatomically correct LEGO woman. "Why?" I dunno, but if she tries to tell you that baby is mine she's lying!

Hit the jump for the video, but feel free to skip around. WTF do I care? I don't. About anything. I'm battling depression. :/

Thanks to Joanne, who takes her time building things. ESPECIALLY relationships. You don't want to rush all willy-nilly into a friendship only to find out later they're into Nickelback.
