um... judging from your reaction, i guess you were talking about the structural stress of the building.

but it is certainly a cool concept tho; showing which part of the office is more stress-prone in the building's design.

they should invite a Feng Shui expert to CCTV HQ building, figure out the stress level at each corner and put up the lines to reduce it.

Nice update.

Please, share some more pictures of the "other" building across the road, too. That's also an interesting building

I'm starting to wonder if there's more steel than there is office space inside this thing.

I just know that some of the most experienced engineers around the world are working on this project, especially those from Hong Kong, China, and UK.

This building also has one of the most complicated foundation system in the world. One side of the foundation is a traditional one (where the weight of the building is being push Down to earth), and another side has tons of cables tieing the building and the earth to prevent it lifting up to the air.

It maybe hard to understand, but if you build a small model of this building and put it on the table, you would know this the model would always fall forward, and thus the different foundation system to keep it standing.
