That looks like piled up rubble from a nuclear holocaust.

That's what I was thinking. It would make for a good film location for a post-apocalyptic movie.

Something weird is growing on top of this thing in Beijing


Quote:
A privately built villa, surrounded by imitation rocks on the rooftop of a 26-storey residential block in Beijing, caused a furore. Residents of the building complained about the villa, fearing its weight may cause structural collapse.

The owner had spent more than six years to build the villa that covers 1,000 square meters (10,764 square feet). But he had to demolish the ‘illegal’ structure after government warned of strict action.

The ‘illegal’ structure was not only a ‘threat’ to the building’s stability, it also destroyed the aesthetics of the average-looking skyscraper.

how about the AT&T Long Lines building in NYC. it's a good thing this is in New York, because it gets somewhat ignored among all the great architecture in the city.



if this was in Milwaukee it'd be tied as the second-tallest building in the city. imagine the outcry if this dominated Milwaukee's skyline.
