It would be stupid if it did happen a second time. And not only for this building, but for whole Beijing. I hope they make better rules for the fireworks...

From the latest news. the scaffold was installed for acouple of giant billboards, not to repair the TVCC. I guess the billboards were erected to cover the ugly TVCC damage.

A living wall always looks great but is it really tactful after the last building burnt down? THis could end up as one very tall forest fire

all cladding is flammable if there is not a fire repressant system working AND flame retardant foam insulation is not applied to the internal structural work....both unfortunately were not present YET because the building was still under construction. the real question is whether EVERYONE who authorized burning fireworks to begin with has been fired (at the minimum)

seriously, what kind of idiot lights fireworks near ANY building that does not have fire suppression? these types of acts are the height of bureaucratic arrogrance and stupidity (the person in charge had a higher estimation of their rank than they deserved)

That better not be a real proposal because this looks stupid and is a frakked-up concept.

I said that proposal with the trees and grass on the outer skin on the TVCC will never work because that proposal is stupid and I don't want it to happen in real life. Why was that crap even proposed anyway?

I don't understand the need for new proposals. Why aren't they just repairing the current one?
