It's a building, a skyscaper, it's CCTV!

The CCTV Building scheduled for the '08 olympic games in Beijing redefines the skyscraper.

Some Info









My favorite design of all time. I think it's BRILIANT! My dad is actually trying to get a deal going with them for security locks and whatnot, and it should be a very big sale. What do you guys think?

It is crazy! But I don't know how will the building look compared with the rest of Beijing's skyline.

Very different, i'm not sure what to make of it. I guess i'll just have to wait for the finished product.
